Accepting Proposals - 2021 Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant

Now accepting proposals for the 2021 Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant through March 22, 2021. Read more about the grant and find instructions to submit a proposal on our website: Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant.

Broadening participation in computing is a core part of Microsoft's values; accordingly, we are excited to continue the Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant that aims to recognize and support diverse doctoral students as they complete their dissertation research in computing-related fields.

This grant is open to doctoral students in their fourth year or beyond at universities in the United States and Canada, who are underrepresented in the field of computing. This includes those who self-identify as a woman, African American, Black, Hispanic, Latinx, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and/or person with a disability. The program allows students to submit a proposal of up to $25,000 USD to support their dissertation research; grant recipients can also participate in a two-day career workshop later this year.
