The Graduate College Office of External Fellowships is now accepting departmental nominations for the 2020 Google US/Canada PhD Fellowship Program. The fellowship supports outstanding PhD candidates in computer science and related disciplines. The fellowship offers two years of support, with a third year extension possible at Google's discretion. Benefits include a $35,000 annual stipend, full coverage of tuition and fees, and the opportunity to work with a Google research mentor.
This year’s program targets students conducting research in the following areas: Computational Neuroscience; Human-Computer Interaction; Machine Learning; Machine Perception, Speech Technology, & Computer Vision; Market Algorithms; Mobile Computing; Natural Language Processing (including Information Retrieval & Extraction); Privacy & Security; Programming Technology & Software Engineering; Quantum Computing; Structured Data & Database Management; Systems & Networking; and Operating Systems.
Applicants must be on track to complete all coursework by the beginning of the fellowship term (Fall 2020).
Applicants must be nominated by their departments, and departments may generally nominate up to two students each. However, an additional two nominations may be submitted if the two nominees are members of a group traditionally underrepresented in the field of computing. For details on the fellowship and the nomination process, visit the Google PhD Fellowship listing in our Fellowship Finder database.
Nominations are due in the Graduate College by 5:00 p.m. on November 18, 2019 but should be submitted to Joan Christian in the CEE dept by Friday, Nov 15. A campus review panel will select up to four finalists for consideration in the national competition. Those applications will be sent to Google, and Google will determine awardees.
