The AT&T Labs Fellowship Program seeks to encourage outstanding, underrepresented minority and women students to pursue Ph.D. studies in computer and communications-related fields. There is a single type of award in the program: a 3-year fellowship. The fellowship provides for all educational expenses during the school year (including tuition, books, fees, and approved travel expenses), Education expenses for summer study or university research, a stipend for living expenses (currently $2,380 per month, paid for 10 months of the year, plus a $500 book allowance), and support for attending approved scientific conferences. Designed as a practical program to enhance and support graduate study, the ALF Program provides financial assistance to deserving students and devotes special attention to the personal interaction of students with practicing researchers. Each student works with an AT&T mentor, an experienced scientist or engineer in a related discipline, who serves as a resource for academic and career guidance. The program is intended to prepare students to become leaders in their chosen disciplines.
