In 2012, Qualcomm Research established a fellowship program in Europe following the successful model in the U.S. For 2017 the program in Europe will be run as a single competition where students from all invited universities in Europe compete. Each winning student receives a fellowship in the amount of $40,000 for the upcoming academic year and is assigned a Qualcomm researcher as a mentor to facilitate close collaboration and interaction with Qualcomm’s corporate research center. The European winners are also invited to join the U.S. winners day at the Qualcomm headquarter in San Diego, CA.
We believe that research and development is the key to harnessing the power of imagination and to discovering new possibilities. We are excited to announce a new kind of Fellowship that promotes Qualcomm’s core values of innovation, execution and partnership. Our goal is to enable students to pursue their futuristic innovative ideas.
We will be awarding Fellowships to three winning students for the 2017-18 academic year.
Each of the three winning students will be awarded a $40,000 fellowship for submitting the most innovative proposals. The respective academic departments at each university will administer funds to the winning students for their fellowship work and research expenses for the academic year of 2017–18.

In addition to the faculty advisor(s) to guide the fellowship research, Qualcomm will also provide industry experts to mentor the students, as well as regular collaboration opportunities with Qualcomm Research & Development to further assist with projects. Successful projects will be reevaluated after one year for further research funding from Qualcomm.
