An international mentorship program for aspiring researchers in computer science
What is Fatima Fellowship?
The Fatima Al-Fihri Predoctoral Fellowship is a free 9-month program in which students from around the world, who are planning on applying to computer science or machine learning PhD programs in the United States or Europe, work with current PhD students or researchers on research projects to gain research experience and strengthen their applications.

🌎 Community Seminars
If you are a student from anywhere around the world interested in applying to computer science (or related fields like machine learning) PhD programs in 2023 or 2024, you are eligible to apply to the Fatima Fellowship. Our Mentors will work with you to strengthen your application and increase your chances in getting into a top PhD programs in computer science. We expect most applicants to be juniors, seniors, or Master's students, but this is not necessarily a criterion for the fellowship.
Values we look for in Fatima Fellows:
To make meaningful progress on a research project requires 15-20 hours a week. We look for Fellows who can make a meaningful commitment to the program.
To make the most progress in research, you need to have a strong skill set. This usually means taking advanced courses in your chosen field.
The Fellowship is a community of students who volunteer their time to help one another. We look for Fellows who have demonstrated a spirit of community.
The Fatima Fellowship is made possible by the generous sponsorship from Hugging Face, whose commitment to open research and funding lets us provide free computational resources to our students.
Our mentors are PhD students, post-docs, and researchers at top universities and research labs, from institutions such as:
"It has been one of the most satisfying things I have ever done to work with smart students from around the world, and it's remarkable how just my feedback has translated into a huge difference in [my students'] academic career" — 2021 Mentor. Join as a mentor!
