    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.

    Winners of the Fellowship 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 research statement, publication record, and recommendation letters.

    While open to students in any year of PhD study, a heavy emphasis on research and publication record for Facebook Fellowships favor students who are further along in their course of study.  Applicants who who are earlier in their career and fit the criteria of a minority group that is under-represented in the technology sector have the option of being evaluated for an Emerging Scholar Award.

    The Facebook Fellowship application will open September 4th, 2018 and closes on October 12, 2018.
