AT&T Labs Fellowship are available to outstanding under-represented minority and women students who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents and who are pursuing Ph.D. studies in computer and communications-related fields. If you really want to make a difference as a professional scientist, we can help you get started.
The ALFP program awards a three-year fellowship and is contingent on an annual review demonstrating that the recipients are making satisfactory progress toward their PhD.
Each fellowship recipient participates in a research summer internship during their first summer in the program. During the summer, students work as a part of research teams on various projects within AT&T Labs. You can learn about AT&T Research by viewing our current research areas and sample projects from prior years.
