Google PhD Fellowship Program, 2021 (Up to $30,000)

Deadline: 22nd April, 2021

The Google PhD Fellowship Program recognize outstanding graduate students doing exceptional and innovative research in areas relevant to computer science and related fields. The fellowships also support promising PhD candidates of all backgrounds who seek to influence the future of technology.

Google’s mission is to foster inclusive research communities and encourages people of diverse backgrounds to apply.

Google offer the PhD Fellowships in Africa, Australia, Canada, East Asia, Europe, India, New Zealand, Southeast Asia and the United States.

Students will receive the Google PhD Fellowship which include a monetary award. Google will distribute the funds  directly to the university to cover the student’s expenses and stipend as appropriate. The funds are given as an unrestricted gift, and it is Google’s policy not to pay for overhead on unrestricted gifts.

Also, Google will match a student with a Google Research Mentor who we hope will become a valuable resource to the student. There is no employee relationship between the student and Google as a result of receiving the fellowship. Fellowship recipients are not subject to intellectual property restrictions unless they complete an internship at Google. Fellowship recipients serving an internship are subject to the same intellectual property and other contractual obligations as any other Google intern. If a Fellowship student is interested, Google encourages an internship, but not guaranteed or required.
