The Two Sigma PhD Fellowship supports doctoral students pursuing a PhD in a STEM field such as Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Finance/Econometrics at an accredited university in the United States. Applications are assessed based on the student’s research proposal, publications and recommendation letters.
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, in the form of an unrestricted gift paid directly to the university.
Fellowship recipients will also receive a one-time award of $10,000 USD paid to the Fellowship recipient directly, which, as a condition of the fellowship, may only be used for tuition, fees required to enroll at or attend their university, and books, supplies, equipment and course-related fees for courses at their university.
A Two Sigma Research Mentor will be assigned to the Fellowship recipient.
Two Sigma is interested in the following computer science topics:
Applicants must be full-time students currently pursuing a PhD at an accredited university in the United States.
Students must be in at least their 3rd year of a PhD program when the Fellowship begins (fall semester or quarter 2022).
Two Sigma employees, contractors/consultants & relatives are not eligible.
Students that are already supported by another industry fellowship are not eligible.
The department can nominate up to 3 PhD students. Their goal is essentially to sponsor outstanding research in STEM fields and therefore establish a long lasting partnership between Faculty, students, and Two Sigma.
