About The Microsoft Research Ph.D. Fellowship 2024

Microsoft Research is making changes to the PhD Fellowship program and will be pausing our call for proposals/nominations for the 2023 calendar year. We are exploring new avenues to invest in our academic partnerships and bring together students and researchers to collaborate, share knowledge, and pursue new research directions.

We look forward to announcing a new program in May 2023. We invite you to check back on this page or follow us on social media for more details as they are announced.
