Microsoft PhD Scholarships for Students of Africa, Europe, and the Middle East
Application deadline: 16 September 2009
The PhD Scholarship 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. Joint applications by two supervisors from different disciplines are especially encouraged.

We usually consider only one application per university department or per laboratory of a national research institution.
Only applications from countries in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East will be considered. Some additional criteria apply in some of these countries (see Country-Specific Application Guidelines below).
Only applications in research areas relatively close to the ones researchers at Microsoft Research in Cambridge focus on will be considered. These areas are:
- Computational Science
- Computer-Mediated Living
- Constraint Reasoning
- Machine Learning and Perception
- Online Services and Advertising
- Programming, Principles, and Tools
- Systems and Networking
Unless otherwise specified, applications may only be submitted through the online application tool.
