Apply For The NVIDIA International Graduate Fellowship Program 2020/2021 For Doctoral Students

Brief Description

This was the eighteenth year that NVIDIA has invited PhD students to submit their research projects for consideration. Recipients are selected based on their academic achievements, professor nomination, and area of research. We have found this program to be a great way to support academia in its pursuit of cutting edge innovation, as well as an ideal avenue to introduce NVIDIA to the future leaders of the industry.

NVIDIA has long believed that investing in university talent is beneficial to the industry and key to our continued growth and success. The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program now provides funding in the amount of up to $50,000 per award to PhD students who are researching topics that will lead to major advances in the graphics and high-performance computing industries, and are investigating innovative ways of leveraging the power of the GPU.


  • Students must have already completed their first year of PhD level studies (at the time of application).

  • Students must have majors in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, System Architecture, Electrical Engineering, or a related area.

  • Students must be engaged in active research as part of their PhD thesis.

  • Students must be enrolled as a full time active PhD student during the 2020-2021 academic year (9 months) of the award — this means they should not be expecting to graduate sooner than May/June 2021.

  • Students must be available to complete a summer internship prior to the start of their Fellowship year.

  • Students may not be a relative of a current NVIDIA employee.

Deadline is September 13, 2019
