We are excited to announce the 2021 NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship recipients! We know that there is incredibly important work taking place at universities worldwide, and the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program allows us to demonstrate our commitment to academia in supporting research that spans all areas of computing innovation. Again this year, emphasis was given to students pushing the envelope in artificial intelligence, deep neural networks, natural language processing, robotics, and related fields.

We had another record year of applications for the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program and the fellowship committee undertook the very difficult task of reviewing all these applications. All of the research projects were very exciting and selecting the final fellowship recipients was an extremely difficult decision. Chief Scientist, Bill Dally, and the rest of the review committee would like to congratulate the 2021 NVIDIA Graduate Fellows:
