Dear Faculty Colleague:

IBM is pleased to announce the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship program for the 2016-2017 academic year.  We have received many outstanding and exceptional candidates from universities all over the world in the past and encourage your participation. IBM Ph.D. Fellowship nominations may be made by doctoral faculty members from September 17 through October 27, 2015.  Please note there are changes to the program scope, for details go to http://www.ibm.com/university/phdfellowship.

The IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Awards Program is an intensely competitive worldwide program, which honors exceptional Ph.D. students who have an interest in solving problems that are important to IBM and fundamental to innovation in many academic disciplines and areas of study. These include: computer science and engineering (including cyber security and cloud computing), electrical and mechanical engineering, physical sciences (including chemistry, material sciences, and physics), mathematical sciences (including analytics of massive scale data with uncertainty, operations research, and optimization), public sector and business sciences (including urban policy and analytics, social technologies, learning systems and Cognitive Computing) and Service Science, Management, and Engineering (SSME). Additional details are in the attached poster.

Preference will be given to students who have had an IBM internship or have closely collaborated with technical or services people from IBM.

The IBM Ph.D. Fellowship program also supports our long-standing commitment to workforce diversity. IBM values diversity in the workplace and encourages nominations of women, minorities and all who contribute to that diversity.

Awardees will have an opportunity to be recognized on IBM web sites and communications.

Please feel free to display the attached program announcement poster in your department office(s). This announcement will also be posted on the Internet at http://www.ibm.com/university/phdfellowship on September 17, 2015 and will be linked to the Internet nomination form. Award recipients will be finalized mid February, 2016 followed by emails to all participants. All supporting documents for the fellowship, such as student’s resume, and endorsement by the department head as well as the nominator’s recommendation must be included in the nomination form.  We ask that each department submit no more than two new nominations (in addition to any existing fellowship nominations to compete for a renewal). In cases of more than one nomination for a fellowship (including competing renewal nominations), the department head’s endorsement must include an indication of the relative merits of all the candidates and the department’s prioritization of these candidates. Students from Europe and Russia may be nominated in their first year of study in their doctoral program. Outside of Europe and Russia students must have completed at least one year of study in their doctoral program at the time of their nomination. Students from U.S. embargoed countries are not eligible for the program.

IBM Ph.D. Fellowships are awarded worldwide. IBM Ph.D. Fellows are awarded a stipend for the academic year 2016-2017. Fellowships vary by country/geographic area and the student will be informed at the time of the award what the value is for their country/geographic area. All IBM Ph.D. Fellows are matched with an IBM Mentor according to their technical interests, and they are strongly encouraged to participate in an internship at least once while completing their studies. While students may accept other supplemental fellowships, to be eligible for the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship they may not accept a major award in addition to the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship. Students in Europe and Russia may accept government scholarships and remain eligible for the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship.

We look forward to receiving your department’s nominations.
