The world has big research problems. GPUs can help solve them.

That’s why we’re launching our 14th annual Graduate Fellowship Program. Our goal is to provide grants and technical support to graduate students doing outstanding GPU-based research.

We’re providing grants and technical support to graduate students doing outstanding GPU-based research.

We’ll select up to 10 doctoral students from around the world for grants of $25,000 each for research that advances parallel computing. Besides funding, they’ll get access to NVIDIA technology and programming talent.

Since its start in 2002, the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program has awarded over 100 grants. They’ve helped students achieve breakthroughs in their research, some of which would not have been possible without extra funding.

The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program for the 2015 academic year is open to applicants worldwide. The deadline for submitting applications is Jan. 15, 2015.

We’re looking for students who have completed their first year of Ph.D. level studies. Candidates need to be studying computer science, computer engineering, system architecture, electrical engineering or a related area. Applicants must also be members of an active research team.
