The Future of STEM

We are dedicated to building programing that supports the future leaders in STEM and improves representation across gender, race, and ethnicity.

  • PhD Fellowship

    Two Sigma’s PhD Fellowship is open to all doctoral students who are expanding frontiers in a STEM field such as statistics, applied mathematics, computer science, and physics.

  • Partnered Fellowship

    We offer partnered fellowship opportunities to accredited universities and colleges in the United States to foster greater inclusivity in academia. We are actively seeking partnerships with institutions to establish fellowships for doctoral students who are members of historically underrepresented groups.
