amount varies in different countries and may depend on the specific arrangement with public research funding
agencies. The bursary continues automatically the following years, provided the Scholar meets the requirements of
the institution. Payment is made to the institution. The amount of the scholarship is the maximum amount Microsoft
Research pays to the institution. In addition, every Scholar receives a laptop allowance. During the course of their
PhD, Scholars are invited to Microsoft Research in Cambridge for a PhD Summer School that includes a series of
talks of academic interest and posters sessions, which provides the Scholars the opportunity to present their work to
Microsoft researchers and a number of Cambridge academics.
Selection Criteria: A two stage evaluation process will be implemented for all eligible applications.
-Stage 1: A panel of Microsoft researchers determines whether an application meets the basic selection criteria and
goes through to stage 2.
-Stage 2: Applications are sent for comprehensive review to at least three Microsoft internal or external reviewers.
Ranking depends on review feedback. Other factors, such as relevance to Microsoft research topics, are taken into
account for the selection of approximately 20 applications. Detailed feedback will be given to all stage 2 proposals.
Notification: Applicants notified in two stages:
-Stage 1: October 2014
-Stage 2: February 2015
How to Apply: Applications must be submitted by academic institutions, such as from a PhD supervisor or
departmental secretary. They do not accept applications from students directly. Applications should contain the
following:
-An online application form that includes contact details of supervisor(s) and possible reviewers. Ideally, one of the
suggested reviewers should be from Microsoft Research. If no suitable Microsoft researcher can be identified, it may
mean that the proposed research project is too far from our areas of interest.
-A project proposal of maximum six (6) A4 pages in 10-point font, including references. Accepted formats: plain text
(.txt), .pdf, or Microsoft Office Word (.doc or.docx) only. The research project proposal should address the following
points:
-Evidence that the research supervisor would be suitable to supervise a PhD student for the proposed research
project.
-This may include a short list of the supervisors recent and relevant publications. Please consider including the
URLs of the publications to make it easier for reviewers to find them.
-Evidence that the department or laboratory offers a suitable environment for research in the proposed area.
-Basis for the research (motivations and brief state-of-the-art, including key references).
-Hypothesis under investigation and main aims.
-Research strategy with significant milestones if identified.
-Methods of research (for example, main techniques, experiments, and trials).
-Details of any collaboration with other departments/research bodies.
-Expected outcomes (for example, software tools).
Scholarship Application Deadline: The application deadline is 26th September 2014.
Note: The online submission system will open on 1 September 2014.
