Jane Street Graduate Research Fellowship
About the program
The Jane Street Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) supports exceptional doctoral students currently pursuing a PhD in computer science, mathematics, physics, or statistics.
At Jane Street, we take a rigorous, quantitative approach to trading on global markets — combining techniques from machine learning, distributed systems, programmable hardware, statistics, and applied mathematics. Our culture is steeped in games, puzzles, and challenging problems. With the Graduate Research Fellowship, we’re excited to support PhD students who share our values: technical excellence, intellectual curiosity, and humility.
Fellows will have their full tuition and fees covered for the academic year and receive an additional $45,000 USD stipend to help with living expenses while in school. All Finalists will receive a $5,000 monetary award. Those selected as Fellows will receive this in addition to their Fellowship stipend. Students must remain in good academic standing as an active, full-time member of their PhD program for the duration of the academic year of the award.
