Intel® PhD Fellowship Program


Intel PhD Fellowship Program

The Intel® PhD Fellowship Program is a U.S. program administered through the University Programs Office. The goal of the program is to advance innovation in key areas of technology, as well as develop a pipeline of world-class technical talent for Intel's future workforce and the global knowledge-based economy. To achieve this goal, Intel collaborates with strategic research universities worldwide to expand university curricula, engage in focused research, sponsor innovation competitions, and encourage student participation in research through their education.

The Intel PhD Fellowship Program awards fellowships to exceptional PhD candidates pursuing leading-edge innovation in fields related to Intel's business and research interests. This is a prestigious and highly competitive program with a limited number of fellowships awarded annually. Selected students receiving this award are recognized as being amongst the best in their specific areas of research.

The Intel PhD Fellowship Program was started in the early 1990s by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore. Its purpose was to recognize and honor top students pioneering research in all areas that would benefit humankind. Gordon wanted to give back to those universities and communities who excelled at producing top technical talent. It was also a way to foster collaborative partnerships with universities, its faculty, and promote the next generation of technology leadership. The program has been operational every year for more than two decades. Today's program maintains that same spirit of acknowledging innovative talent and places an added emphasis on developing generations of students who are responsive to the thought-provoking questions facing the semiconductor and computing industries and their impact on an increasingly connected global society.



Intel PhD fellows are invited to attend the PhD Fellowship Forum held during the summer on the Intel campus to be recognized, learn about Intel's latest technologies, and network with fellow winners, top Intel executives, and technical leaders. Follow us on YouTube*, Facebook*, and Twitter* to find out about Intel’s latest research, academic programs, student competitions, and career opportunities.
