by Sylvia Chanak

We’re working to connect the world’s brightest minds with GPU technology that can help solve some of the world’s biggest research problems.

That’s why we’ve launched our 16th annual Graduate Fellowship Program. We’re looking for students doing outstanding GPU-based research. Our goal: Provide them with grants and technical support so they can achieve breakthroughs.

This year we’re especially seeking doctoral students pushing the envelope in AI, deep neural networks, autonomous vehicles and related fields. Our Graduate Fellowship awards are now up to $50,000 per student.

Since its start in 2002, the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program has awarded over 130 grants worth more than $3 million.

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 be engaging in researching topics that involve investigating innovative ways of leveraging the power of the GPU.

The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program for the 2017-2018 academic year is open to applicants worldwide. The deadline for submitting applications is Jan. 16, 2017.
