I am a PhD student in Computer Science and work in Computer Architecture and Compiler Lab with my advisor, Dr. Soner Onder. Before I came to Michigan Tech, I was an ASIC engineer in industry. I still remembered the day I decided to come back to school and pursue a higher education. I prefer a life with new adventures and learning new technologies. Finally I am able to contribute my research and share it with the whole world. When I look back on my PhD career, I think that is the best decision I ever made in my life to get a PhD degree. We learned from the work previous researchers have completed and contributed our work for the future researchers. Now it is my last year in Michigan Tech. I will write my dissertation which includes all the work I have finished in these years. The finishing fellowship immensely helps my situation so that I do not need to worry too much and can focus on my dissertation. Here I want to sincerely thank for the sponsor of the fellowship and the panel. With the help been given from you, I believe I can finish my dissertation outstandingly and defend it on time.
The Graduate School is pleased to announce the awarding of Finishing Fellowships for doctoral candidates. Fellowships are available through the generosity of alumni and friends of the University. They are intended to recognize outstanding PhD candidates who are in need of financial support to finish their degrees.

ACM SIGHPC and Intel have partnered to create Computational and Data Science Fellowships, a 5-year program to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science. Specifically targeted at women or students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field, the program is open to students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world.
Submissions close: April 30
Winners announced: by July 31
To qualify for a Computational & Data Science Fellowship, a student must be:
- Either currently enrolled in a graduate program or accepted to begin in one no later than October 15
- Pursuing a graduate degree – Master’s, PhD, or equivalent – in computational or data science (although the formal name of the program may be somewhat different)
- Completed less than half of her/his planned program of study (with preference given to students who are still early in their studies)
- A woman and/or a member of a racial/ethnic group that is currently underrepresented in the computing field in the country where the student will earn the degree
The Computational & Data Science Fellowships are made possible by a generous donation from Intel.
