Microsoft Research India PhD Fellowships

Overview

Microsoft Research India PhD Fellowships support PhD students at Indian universities while they pursue doctoral education in computer science and related areas. The fellowships are awarded after a rigorous selection process that includes application, letters of reference, and selection by a panel of leading researchers.

About the Fellowships

For each academic year, Microsoft Research India awards five PhD Fellowships.

The award comprises a monthly stipend that will be disbursed to the awardee over a maximum period of four years. This monthly sum can be used for tuition, books, stipends, and/or any other expenses.

Each PhD Fellow receives a laptop computer and a separate sum of Rs 2,50,000 (rupees two lakh fifty thousand only) for travel to conferences and seminars during the term of the Fellowship.

Each Fellow will be invited to various events conducted by Microsoft Research and will have the opportunity to interact with researchers at Microsoft Research India.
