The Facebook Fellowship Program and Emerging Scholar Awards are designed to encourage and support promising doctoral students who are engaged in innovative and relevant research in areas related to computer science and engineering.
The Emerging Scholar Award is open to first or second year PhD students. It is designed to support talented students from traditionally under-represented minority groups* in the technology sector, to encourage them to continue their PhD studies, pursue innovative research, and engage with the broader research community.
Winners of the Emerging Scholar Award are entitled to receive two years of tuition and fees paid, a stipend of $37,000 each year, and up to $5,000 in conference travel support.
Applications will be evaluated based on the strength of the student’s proposed research and their recommendation letters.
The Facebook Emerging Scholars application is now open and closes on October 12, 2018 at 11:59 pm PST. Click below to apply.
