The Adobe Research Fellowship consists of:

  • A $10,000 award paid once.
  • A Creative Cloud subscription membership for one year.
  • An Adobe Research mentor.
  • An internship at Adobe for the 2017 summer.

In order to be considered for the 2017 Adobe Research Fellowship, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Remain an active, full-time student in a PhD program for the full duration of 2017 or forfeit the award.
  • Cannot have a close relative working for Adobe Research.

A committee of Adobe researchers will be reviewing all applicants and choose the recipients at their discretion. Recipients are selected based on their research (creative, impactful, important, and realistic in scope) and how their work would contribute to Adobe, their technical skills (ability to build complex computer programs), and personal skills (problem-solving ability, communication, leadership, organizational skills, ability to work in teams). Students may be invited for phone interviews following the initial review.
