The Facebook Fellowship is a global program designed to encourage and support promising doctoral students who are engaged in innovative and relevant research in areas related to computer science and engineering at an accredited university.

The program is open to students in any year of their Ph.D. study. We also encourage people of diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply, especially those from traditionally underrepresented minority groups. Applications are evaluated based on the strength of the student’s research statement, publication record, and recommendation letters.

Winners are entitled to receive tuition and fees paid for the academic year (up to two years/four semesters), a $42,000 annual stipend to cover living and conference travel costs, a paid visit to Facebook headquarters for the annual Fellowship Summit (pending COVID-19 restrictions) and various opportunities to engage with Facebook researchers. For full details and to apply, please visit the Facebook Fellowship Page or read our latest blog with resources for applicants.
