NVIDIA Awards $275,000 to 11 GPU Computing Geniuses

The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program awards $25,000 to Ph.D. students involved in computer research. The aim is to help students continue researching ways to use GPUs to tackle complex computing challenges in industries such as medical imaging, space exploration, automotive design and film production. The program provides a financial incentive and technical support to graduate students conducting outstanding GPU-based research.

In September, we kicked off the 12th Annual NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program and invited students to submit their research projects for consideration. Our Graduate Fellowship award winners were selected from hundreds of applicants in 39 countries. Their projects involve a variety of technical challenges, including computer architecture, programming models, character animation, computer graphics and computational methods for simulating chemical events.
