Four NUS Computing PhD students receive the Google PhD Fellowship

Congratulations to four NUS Computing PhD students who were awarded the Google PhD Fellowship in 2023. Started in 2009, the Google PhD Fellowship programme was set up to recognise outstanding graduates with exceptional work in Computer Science related disciplines or promising research areas.

As a recipient from an institution in Southeast Asia, each student will receive a stipend of up to US$10K per year for a Fellowship of up to three years and work under the guidance of a Google Research mentor.

This marks the third year that the fellowship is available to graduate students from Southeast Asia. This clearly acknowledges the rising influence of Southeast Asian research in shaping the future of technology.
