Two Sigma PhD Fellowship

Two Sigma is dedicated to building programming that supports the future leaders in STEM and improves representation across gender, race, and ethnicity. Two Sigma’s PhD Fellowship is open to all doctoral students who are expanding frontiers in a STEM field such as statistics, applied mathematics, computer science, and physics. Fellowship recipients will receive an award for two consecutive Academic years (not to exceed $75,000 USD per Academic year) to cover tuition and fees plus a stipend for living expenses, as well as a one-time award of $10,000 USD (for tuition, fees required to enroll at or attend their university, and/or books, supplies, equipment, and course-related fees for courses) and assignment to a Two Sigma Research Mentor. 

Applicants must be full-time students currently pursuing a PhD at an accredited U.S. university and be at least in their 3rd year of a PhD program when the Fellowship begins (Fall Semester 2024). Students must be nominated by the Chair of their department or a designated doctoral faculty member. A maximum of six nominations per department will be accepted.

To apply, visit the CS Department's 23-24 Two Sigma PhD Fellowship page. 

Applications are due on Monday, October 16, 2023 by 11:59PM.
