Robb Award Application Due April 30

February 4, 2013

The Department is requesting proposals from EECS graduate students who are in need of financial support to present papers at conferences or workshops, attend conferences or short courses, or participate in other activities that would enhance their educational experience and knowledge. The support is made possible through an endowed grant by Dr. David D. Robb.

Application deadline is April 30.

Students interested in applying for the award should submit the following to the EECS Office. Make sure to label the envelope “DAVID D. AND MILDRED H. ROBB AWARD.”


Priority shall be given to awards that enable students’ participation; in other words, awards allow students to participate in conferences that they otherwise would be financially unable to attend.
