Jimmy H. C. Lin Entrepreneurship Award
The Jimmy H. C. Lin Entrepreneurship Competition Award will promote entrepreneurship in the ECE Department by providing an award to the student/staff/faculty team that achieves the highest level of recognition in the annual University of Maryland Business Plan Competition.
Each of the award recipients will be identified by the Chair of the ECE Department with the help of an ad hoc committee selected by the Chair.
An award ceremony will be held each year for the recipients of these awards.
*This award was discontinued in 2015 because the University discontinued the annual University of Maryland Business Plan Competition.*
