NVIDIA to Give $25,000 Grad Student Grants

The world has big scientific research problems that are getting tackled head-on with the help of GPU computing. And we want to help solve them. So, we’re launching our 13th annual Graduate Fellowship Program, which advances the frontiers of science by awarding grants and providing technical support to graduate students who are doing outstanding GPU-based research.

We’ll select up to 10 Ph.D. students from around the world for grants of $25,000 each for research that advances parallel computing. In addition to funding, they’ll get access to NVIDIA technology and programming talent. Since its inception in 2002, the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program has awarded over 100 doctoral students with grants that have helped accelerate their research efforts. More importantly, this funding has helped some students achieve major breakthroughs in their research آ– breakthroughs that may not have been possible without additional funding.
