Opening Doors for Outstanding Technical Graduate Students

Fellowships offer connections with Intel technical liaisons as well as tuition support

Awarding fellowships to outstanding candidates

  • Intel Corporation and the Intel Foundation together support three graduate fellowship programs at select universities in the United States. These fellowships are awarded to outstanding students in Engineering, Computer Science, and other technical majors focusing on semiconductor technologies, microarchitecture, software technology and design, and communications. Students in these programs are prioritized for receiving internships. The students in the PhD fellowship program are provided with the opportunity to meet their designated Intel Technical Liaison face-to-face, either at a conference or at Intel.
  • The Intel Corporation PhD Fellowship Program awards fellowships to PhD candidates pursuing leading-edge work in fields related to Intel's business and research interests. Select U.S. universities are invited to submit a limited number of students for consideration. Those students selected by their university are then carefully reviewed by the Intel fellows and their designees who choose the winning students. The program encourages applicants from underrepresented minority groups, including women to apply through their university. The fellowship includes a cash award (tuition and stipend), an Intel Technical Liaison and travel funds to meet the liaison either at a conference or here at Intel. These students are also prioritized for internships and hiring within the company. This is a highly competitive program with a limited number of fellowships awarded annually.

Contact your school's engineering or computer science department to determine if your school is one of the participating schools, or to receive additional information. Applications are not accepted directly from students.

  • The Intel Foundation collaborates with the National Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering and Science (GEM), which focuses on supporting graduate education for underrepresented minorities at the master's and PhD levels. Please contact GEM for any questions about its program or application process.
  • The Intel Foundation also collaborates with the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), which supports about 35 fellowships each year. SRC also focuses on master's programs for women and underrepresented minorities in the area of semiconductor research. Please contact the SRC for any questions about its program or application process.
