Google PhD Fellowships directly support graduate students as they pursue their PhD, as well as connect them to a Google Research Mentor.
Nurturing and maintaining strong relations with the academic community is a top priority at Google.

We currently offer Fellowships in Australia, China and East Asia, Europe, Africa, India, the United States and Canada.
