Prospective PhD students as well as those already in the program are strongly encouraged to apply for external fellowships. In addition to the prestige associated with external support, the department's policy is to pay the student, whenever possible, a "supplement" that produces a 9-month stipend (during September-May) that is 25% higher than the standard departmental 9-month stipend.
The following is a list of external fellowships for doctoral students in computer science. Note that nominations for the IBM, Google, Microsoft and Simons fellowships are submitted by the department, and the department can only nominate a limited number. Applications for the other fellowships are submitted by individual students.
For further information or assistance with any of these, please contact Prof. Richard Cole.
A list of past fellowship winners from the department can be found on the Student Recognition Page.
Where the current year deadline is not yet known, the deadline for a previous year is listed.
