Every year, the Google PhD Fellowship program awards PhD students who are recognized for doing exceptional and innovative research in areas relevant to Computer Science and related fields. The North American Fellowship includes full tuition and fees, a stipend, a Google Research Mentor, and an invitation to a yearly Global Summit for up to 3 years.
Starting with the upcoming 2020 North American awards cycle, we’re increasing the number of student nominations per university. Universities in the United States and Canada may nominate up to four eligible students from Computer Science or related fields. If more than two are nominated, then in order to increase opportunities for students who are underrepresented in the field of computing, additional nominees must self-identify as a woman, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Hispanic/Latinx, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and/or person with a disability. In other words, if a university chooses to nominate more than 2 students, then the 3rd and 4th student nomination should self-identify with the underrepresented group mentioned above.
All applications will be evaluated based on the strength of the student’s research proposal, essay responses, and student academic achievements.
Applications open on November 1st through November 30th, 2019. Please review eligibility and application requirements in the program FAQ. The application link can be found on the program page during the application period.
