Microsoft PhD Scholarships: The Microsoft PhD Scholarships Programme recognises and supports exceptional students who show the potential to make an outstanding contribution to science and computing.

This programme supports PhD students in computing and those working at the intersection of computing and the sciences. Only PhD supervisors should apply.

If their project is selected, the supervisor has up to a year to find the best possible student for the project.

Each Microsoft scholarship consists of an annual bursary up to a maximum of three years. The amount varies in different countries and may depend on specific arrangement with public research funding agencies.
