Strong collaboration with faculty, students and universities is vital to IBM. The IBM PhD Fellowship Award program advances this collaboration by recognizing and supporting exceptional PhD students who want to make their mark in promising and disruptive technologies.

For 70 years IBM has recognized and rewarded outstanding PhD students around the world through a highly competitive program. The distinguished 2020 IBM PhD Fellowship Award recipients demonstrated expertise in pioneering research areas, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, quantum computing, data science, security, hybrid cloud technology, and the next generation of cutting-edge processors.

The 2020 IBM PhD Fellowship Award Program received hundreds of applications from 140 universities in 31 countries. Applications were reviewed by eminent technologists from across IBM. The award recipients excel in their academic fields of study where they are engaged in exceptionally innovative research proposals.

The IBM PhD Fellowship Award program includes two years of support which varies by country. Students are provided a mentor during this time and, where possible, are encouraged to do an internship.

Faculty advisors can nominate their students during the annual nomination period which typically runs from late September through October.

Please join us in congratulating the 2020 IBM PhD Fellowship awardees!
