The Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant

The Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant

Microsoft recognizes the value of diversity in computing. At Microsoft, they believe in the value of research, for their own work and for the world we live in. Hence they are pleased to announce the “Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant” for Ph.D. students. To be eligible for the program, the applicant must be enrolled in your fourth year or beyond of Ph.D. studies and self-identify with a group under-represented in computing. The program aims to increase the pipeline of diverse talent receiving advanced degrees in computing-related fields by providing a research funding opportunity for doctoral students from groups under-represented in computing. The 2017 Grant recipients will receive funding up to 20,000 USD for the academic year 2017–18.

Microsoft has always been a world leader in technological innovation, building some of the most important products in both the software and hardware industry. Now, they are continuing that tradition as our world shifts from focusing on the latest gadgets to focusing on the best, most personalized experiences.

Eligibility

  • Ph.D. students must be enrolled at a university in the United States or Canada and doing dissertation work that relates to computing topics in which Microsoft Research has expertise (click on Research Areas at the top of the page for a full list).
  • Ph.D. students must be in their fourth year or beyond in a Ph.D. program when they apply for this grant. The student must continue to be enrolled at the university in the autumn of 2017. Funding is for use only during their time in the Ph.D. program; it cannot be used for support in a role past graduation, such as a postdoc or faculty position. The applicant will need to confirm their Ph.D. program starting month and year, as well as their expected graduation month and year.
  • Payment of the grant, as described above, will be made directly to the grant recipient’s university and dispersed according to the university’s policies.
  • Applicants must attest that they self-identify with at least one group under-represented in computing. This includes women, African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and/or people with disabilities.
  • International students(those who are not the citizen of U.S and Canada but attending a school in the United States or Canada) are eligible to apply.
