Student Travel Grants + Women in Circuits Travel Grants

The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Student Travel Grant  Award (STGA) progam  recognizes and promotes early career accomplishments in all solid-state circuits fields by supporting student travel to SSCS-sponsored conferences.

With the help of  the STGA program, up-and-coming young engineers:

  • may network with researchers from industry, academia, and government from all over the world
  • learn about IC design break-throughs, and about challenges that have not yet been solved or need to be addressed, in-person and in advance.

STGA applicants must be SSCS members, enrolled for at least a year in a PhD program, and be recommended by one professor. (A dissertation topic needs not yet to have been selected.)


ISSCC Student Travel Grant Awards (STGA's) application will open on October 15th, 2019

 Applications will be accepted from Tuesday, October 15th, 2019 until Thursday, November 28th, 2019. 


Applicants must meet the following requirements:

  •  Applicants MUST be IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Members
  • Students MUST be enrolled, for at least one year, in a PhD program and be recommended by one professor

 *Note* - A dissertation topic need not be selected

Please note the Society, in conjunction with our Women in Circuits program, is pleased to include a new provision to the STGA selection process. A portion of our STGA's will be earmarked to be awarded to those members whose selection would assist SSCS in its ongoing efforts to support the number of women involved in our field of interest, industry, and academia as part of the Society's diversity and inclusion efforts in growing and serving our membership.
