The world has big scientific research-problems that are being tackled head-on with the help of GPU computing, and we want to help solve them.

Today, we are launching our 11th Annual Graduate Fellowship Program, which advances the frontiers of science by awarding grants and providing technical support to graduate students who are doing outstanding GPU-based research.

Up to 10 Ph.D. students from around the world will be selected to receive grants of $25,000 each for research that advances parallel computing. In addition to receiving funding for their research, award recipients will also have access to NVIDIA technology and programming talent. These grants and technical support will be awarded in the 2012 academic year.

Since its inception in 2002, the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program has awarded (http://blogs.nvidia.com/2011/05/nvidia-awards-275000-to-11-top-ph-d-students-for-computing-research/) 95 Ph.D. graduate students with grants that have helped accelerate their research efforts. More importantly, this funding has helped some students achieve major breakthroughs in their research ?? breakthroughs that may not have been possible without additional funding.

The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program is open to applicants worldwide. The deadline for submitting applications is Dec. 8, 2011. Eligible graduate students will have already completed their first year of Ph.D. level studies in the areas of computer science, computer engineering, system architecture, electrical engineering or a related area. In addition, applicants will have current membership on an active research team.
