Share this post:

IBM is pleased to announce the 2020 IBM Two-Year Worldwide PhD Fellowship for the academic years of 2020-2021 and 2021-2022.
Strong collaboration with faculty, students and universities is vital to IBM. The PhD Fellowship Program advances this collaboration by recognizing and supporting exceptional PhD students who want to make their mark in promising and disruptive technologies.
The Fellowship Program is focusing on: AI, cloud/open source, data science, IoT, quantum computing and security/cyber security. IBM is well positioned to advance these technologies and exploit their ability to transform industries and societies.
The 2020 IBM PhD Fellowship includes:
• In the US, fellowship recipients while in school will receive a stipend for living expenses, travel and to attend conferences ($35,000 for 2020-2021 and $35,000 for 2021-2022). US fellowship recipients will also receive $25,000 toward their education in 2020-2021.
• Outside the US, fellowship recipients while in school will receive a competitive stipend for living expenses, travel and to attend conferences for the two academic years 2020-2021 and 2021-2022. Stipends vary by country.
Students should be approximately three years from receiving their PhD degree at the time of nomination to receive the most benefit.
All IBM PhD Fellows are matched with an IBM Mentor according to their technical interests, and are encouraged to participate in an internship at least once while completing their studies. Students receiving a comparable fellowship or internship from another company or institution (does not include academic scholarships) during the same academic period are not eligible for an IBM PhD Fellowship. Students in Europe and Russia may accept government scholarships and remain eligible for the IBM PhD Fellowship.
We have received many outstanding and exceptional candidates from universities all over the world in the past and encourage universities to submit nominations through October 29, 2019.

The IBM PhD Fellowship program also supports our long-standing commitment to workforce diversity and encourages nominations of women, minorities and all who contribute to that diversity.
