Applications due: Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at 11:59 PM 

All internal award applications are submitted through our Blackbaud Awards Management portal. Please refer to the Blackbaud Instructions Page.

Two Sigma PhD Fellowship: 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.

Two Sigma Diversity PhD Fellowship: At Two Sigma we understand that diversity drives innovation, and we actively seek to promote the visibility and inclusion of women, LGBTQ+ people, and those from ethnic and racial backgrounds that remain under-represented in technology. One way we foster greater inclusivity is through the Two Sigma Diversity PhD Fellowship, which supports doctoral students in STEM fields such as Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Finance/Econometrics at accredited universities in the United States.

  • 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.
