Smart Money: Doing Research in AI? Apply for Our $50,000 Grad Fellowship Grants

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 17th 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 working in AI, deep neural networks, autonomous vehicles and related fields. Our Graduate Fellowship awards are up to $50,000 per student.

Since its start in 2002, the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program has awarded over 140 grants worth more than $3.8 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 also be investigating innovative ways to use GPUs.

The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program for the 2018-2019 academic year is open to applicants worldwide. The deadline for submitting applications is December 15, 2017.

    ?? Really? My business partner and I have been trying for *10 days* to buy a TK1 from you goobs for more than a week, and NO ONE CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO SELL US ONE. *Great* tech, but your store and sales folks are so inept that your hardware isn’t ending p in enough hands. We’re building great tech ourselves – intelligent agents and recursive networks implementing medical record management and mining in situ, with remote processes that spin up CN’s and NLP processes to mine unstructured data in near real time, anywhere in the world (it’s not theoretical, it’s Working Now™) – but we’re prototyping on Windows and Linux, because you guys can’t crack the Point of Sale problem.

    Please work it out.

    I am sorry you are having trouble locating the Jetson TK1. The Jetson TK1 was replaced by the TX1 and TX2 developer kits so that is why it is hard to find. Are you sure you are not looking for the Jetson TX1 or TX2?
