Posted by on Aug 22, 2022 in Opportunities |

NVIDIA is now accepting applications for the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program for the 2023-2024 academic year! The program, now in its 22nd year, advances the frontiers of science by awarding grants and providing technical support to graduate students who are doing outstanding research relevant to NVIDIA technologies. NVIDIA is especially seeking doctoral students pushing the envelope in accelerated computing, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, robotics, autonomous vehicles and related fields. Awards are for up to $50,000 per student and will be awarded in the 2023-2024 academic year.

Since its inception in 2002, the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program has awarded 185 doctoral students with grants that have helped accelerate their research efforts. More importantly, this funding has helped some students achieve major breakthroughs in their research — ones that may not have been possible without additional funding.

Eligible graduate students will have already completed their first year of doctoral-level studies at the time of application in the areas of computer science, computer engineering, system architecture, electrical engineering, or a related area. Applicants must also be available to complete a summer internship prior to the start of their fellowship year.
