In 2012, Qualcomm Research established a fellowship program in Europe following the successful model in the U.S. For 2021 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.
“Investment in R&D is a top priority at Qualcomm as innovation makes our technology possible. It’s exciting to see the next generation of AI and Cybersecurity researchers creating such impactful technology. "
- Jim Thompson, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Qualcomm, Inc.
