PhD Fellowship and Young Faculty Awardees

The higher education office of Intel is pleased to announce the 2014 U.S. awardees of its PhD Fellowship Program and its CCF-Intel Young Faculty Researcher Program Awardees.

The PhD Fellowship Program chooses the top students in engineering and computer science through a rigorous and very selective application process.

The CCF-Intel Young Faculty Researcher Program is a joint program with the China Computer Federation to identify and recognize the top early-career faculty at China's most prestigious universities who represent the future thought leaders in their respective areas of research.

Please join us in congratulating this year’s awardees!
