Deadline to submit passed.

We are pleased to announce that, with the generous support of the ASML company, we will have 12 student scholarships to award to students who are submitting and selected to present a paper at the 2020 ASPE Topical Meeting on Design and Control of Precision Mechatronic Systems. These scholarships will cover the cost of conference registration for the spring topical meeting. Students selected will be able to attend the conference without paying the registration fee. Fees for the conference tutorials on Wed. May 6 are not included in the scholarship.

The ASML student scholarship is available to students who are attending university and will be attending at the time of the conference. To apply for the scholarship, eligible students must:

  1. complete a regular short abstract paper submission on the conference web site
  2. complete this scholarship application form
  3. attach a one-page statement of research interests and experience
  4. provide a brief recommendation letter from the student’s faculty research advisor

The scholarship awards will be competitively awarded based upon the submitted paper short abstract and the supporting materials.

Award decisions will be available at the time of paper acceptance.
