PhD candidate Amine Mhedhbi is one of 10 recipients across North America and the only recipient from Canada to receive a 2020 Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship. Established in 2008, these prestigious fellowships have supported more than 150 exceptional doctoral students to date.
Microsoft Research PhD Fellowships are awarded for two years to doctoral candidates in their third year of study. In addition to a $42,000 USD stipend for each of two years, recipients are invited to interview for a salaried internship with leading Microsoft researchers who work on projects related to the recipient’s field of study. As well, recipients are invited to Microsoft’s PhD Summit — a two-day workshop in fall 2020 held at one of Microsoft Research’s labs, where fellows will meet with Microsoft researchers and other top students to share their research.
