Microsoft Dissertation Grant Program

*We are sharing this opportunity on behalf of our colleagues at Microsoft.  Thank you for your support!*


Microsoft recognizes the value of diversity in computing. The Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant aims to increase the pipeline of diverse talent receiving advanced degrees in computing-related fields by providing a research funding opportunity for doctoral students from groups underrepresented in computing (women, African-Americans/Blacks, Latinos, American Indians/Alaskan Natives, Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders, and/or people with disabilities).

How to apply:

You must be enrolled in your fourth year or beyond of PhD studies and self-identify with a group underrepresented in computing.


The 2018 Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant application period closes on Friday, March 30, 2018, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.
