Yahoo announced Yahoo!’s PhD Student Fellowship Program for the 2008-2009 academic school year. Supporting the academic community is a top priority at Yahoo! The Yahoo! PhD Student Fellowship Program was created to recognize outstanding graduate student researchers who we believe have exceptional potential to make significant contributions and become thought leaders in their research fields.

We strongly encourage students working in any of the above or related areas to apply. Yahoo! Fellows will not only benefit from our comprehensive financial support but will also have access to top Yahoo! researchers in their fields and exclusive invitations to important research events.
