Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship

We believe that Research and Development is the key to creating new technologies. For this reason, we are excited to sponsor the annual Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (QInF).

QInF is focused on recognizing, rewarding, and mentoring innovative PhD students across a broad range of technical research areas, based on Qualcomm core values of innovation, execution and teamwork.

The Innovation Fellowship is open to students from a variety of top US based and (since 2012) international schools. We encourage students to apply with an innovation proposal. Qualcommï¿∏s CRD engineers participate in carefully reviewing all submitted proposals and selecting the QInF Finalists, who are then invited to present their proposals to a panel of executive judges. Winning students will be mentored by Qualcomm researchers, to facilitate close collaboration and interaction with Qualcomm CRD.

The rules for application and the selection of winning students vary slightly per country. The program in the various international locations are all distinct from each other and from the US Fellowship. For further details, prospective applicants are invited to refer to the site-specific QInF links below.

We have immensely enjoyed running QInF, meeting all of the finalists, and collaborating with the winners. We look forward to its continued expansion.

Fellowship teams are limited to two students.

Each of the winning teams will be awarded a $100,000 fellowship for submitting the most innovative proposals.

In 2014, QInF expanded by three schools (Caltech, Georgia Tech, UT Austin). This year, we will award Fellowships across eight winning US based teams.
