The PhD Fellowship is intended to support the development of an early-stage researcher conducting research in one of PL's fields of interest. The grant is intended to offer some relief from teaching duties to allow the Fellow to devote more time to their research project.
Who is eligible: This award is available to Ph.D. candidates who have completed their MSc degree or have otherwise satisfied the requirements for PhD candidacy.
The Protocol Labs PhD Fellowship consists of:

- A graduate student stipend in the amount of $40,000 per year for two years.
- A mobility grant funding travel to two annual PL Research Summits, with leftover funds considered discretionary for other conference travel.
Protocol Labs PhD Fellows will be invited to participate in biweekly meetings of the Independent Research team and in a quarterly internal meeting of Protocol Labs researchers. Fellows will also be invited to discuss their research at annual PL-hosted research symposia.
