NTT Research Inc. has established a fellowship program for current PhD students pursuing full-time study in Biomedical Engineering or Optical and Quantum Sciences at research universities for the upcoming academic year.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this fellowship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the NTT Research Fellowship must:

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of NTT Research Inc. play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Up to two full-ride awards will be granted, assuming there are qualified applicants. If the applicant pool allows, one award will be granted for Biomedical Engineering and one award will be granted for Optical and Quantum Sciences.
Awards are intended to cover: tuition, fees, books, and supplies. Award amounts will be determined based on the cost of attendance as determined by each recipient’s college or university plus stipends for books, and supplies. Recipients must submit their cost of attendance before each academic year. If recipients have changes to their enrollment mid-year, their award amount may be adjusted.
Awards are renewable up to five years or until a PhD is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance and continued full-time enrollment in an eligible program at an eligible university.
Awards are for PhD study only.
Recipients may be offered a living stipend through NTT Research Inc. Sponsor will manage the entire stipend process, including disbursement and tax liability, and reporting.
