A couple of announcements to make. First off, we just launched the VMware Graduate Fellowship Program. These fellowships are awarded to outstanding students pursuing research related to VMware’s business interests. We’re offering a fairly significant amount of cash for these nominated awards – two per year – and have put aside internship positions for the recipients. I am really excited about this program. It is yet another way VMware contributes to the academic community in a meaningful (and useful!) way.
The second announcement is more of a teaser for our upcoming Spring RFP award recipients. We are in the final stretch and after reviewing over 50 submissions, we are just about ready to make the official announcement on who our award winners will be for this half of the year. The Fall RFP will be issued later this summer. I’ll post the Spring RFP winners soon!
