    SANTA CLARA, CA—NOVEMBER 28, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced it is accepting applications for the prestigious NVIDIA Fellowship Program for the 2007-2008 academic year.

    Dr. David Kirk, Chief Scientist at NVIDIA stated, "The NVIDIA Fellowship Program is designed to stimulate and support excellence in graphics and computing research in universities worldwide and to promote communication between NVIDIA's R&D team and outstanding students and professors. Since its inception in 2002, the Program has awarded over one million dollars in funding to assist 45 Ph.D. students with their research."

    Ian Buck, an NVIDIA Fellowship award recipient and current member of NVIDIA’s software team, commented, "With GPU technology changing so rapidly, it is next to impossible to do cutting edge research without access to the latest hardware, as well as insight into where GPUs are going in the future. The NVIDIA Fellowship provided me with not only the hardware necessary to succeed, but also gave me the opportunity to collaborate with NVIDIA architects to ensure that my research would have an impact."

    The Program provides funding to Ph.D. students who are researching topics that will lead to major advances in the graphics and digital media industry. Recipients not only receive crucial funding for their research, but are able to conduct groundbreaking work with access to NVIDIA products, technology, and some of the most talented minds in the field.
