The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program is accepting applications from Ph.D. students regarding their research projects until September 9th. This is the 22nd year consecutively that NVIDIA is inviting Ph.D. students to showcase their academic achievements and research. The program began in 2002 and has gained momentum, with as many as 185 grants worth over US$5.9m.
The program seeks doctoral students in 1st year and poses an award of US$50,000 for exceptional research projects. All recipients will have access to NVIDIA products and mentorship opportunities throughout the program. A mandatory internship will follow the program after the fellowship year ends.
Experts will evaluate research projects on several criteria like recommendations, academic achievements, relevance, and domains catering to NVIDIA’s primary research.
The program is a great way to support academia and research in the pursuit of technological innovation and to expand NVIDIA’s employer base by introducing it as an ideal avenue for future experts. Per NVIDIA’s press release, this program “allows us to demonstrate our commitment to academia in supporting research that spans all areas of computing innovation.”
This year’s itinerary will emphasize artificial intelligence, deep neural networks, natural language processing, robotics, and related technologies. Billy Dally, senior research VP and chief scientist at NVIDIA, said the fellowship program would help participants develop relationships with industry experts and pave their way forward.
