Google PhD Fellowship Program 2019:

Applications for the Google Ph.D. Fellowship Program 2019 are open. The Google Ph.D. Fellowship Program was created to recognize outstanding graduate students doing exceptional work in computer science and related research areas.

Google PhD Fellowship Program 2019

Google Ph.D. Fellowships directly support graduate students as they pursue their Ph.D., as well as connect them to a Google Research Mentor. They currently offer Fellowships in Australia, China, and East Asia, Europe, Africa, India, the United States, and Canada.

Google PhD Fellowship Program 2019 Benefits

Students receive named Fellowships which include a monetary award. The funds are given directly to the university to be distributed to cover the student’s expenses and stipend as appropriate. The funds are given as an unrestricted gift, and it is Google’s policy not to pay for overhead on unrestricted gifts. In addition, the student will be matched with a Google Research Mentor who they hope will become a valuable resource to the student.

There is no employment relationship between the student and Google as a result of receiving the fellowship. Fellowship recipients are not subject to intellectual property restrictions unless they complete an internship at Google. Fellowship recipients serving an internship are subject to the same intellectual property and other contractual obligations as any other Google intern. If a Fellowship student is interested, an internship at Google is encouraged, but not guaranteed or required.
