focusing in areas relevant to Facebook, including, without limitation, architecture, computer vision, data

proposal, CV/resume, and contact information for two references. Current employees at Facebook,
selected by Facebook in its sole discretion, will review the applications and select individuals from any of
the Topics and/or Fields to receive Awards. The number of Awards awarded and the Topics/Fields from
which the Award recipients come will be determined by Facebook in its sole discretion. Whether a Topic

ELIGIBILITY: This Program is open to individuals who are enrolled full-time, as defined by the
individual’s university, and in good standing at an appropriately accredited doctoral program focusing on
a Topic or Field (whether an individual is engaged in research in a Topic or Field will be determined in

legal resident of those countries in which the United States has embargoed goods (including, without
limitation, Cuba, North Korea, Iran, and Syria, unless you are enrolled full-time at an accredited
university in the United States or a non-embargoed country, with the exception of nationals and legal

Facebook’s ability to select for receipt of an Award a PhD Student who is from a country against which
the United States has imposed comprehensive economic sanctions (such as Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria, or
North Korea) may be sharply limited by United States law.
Further, the Award, or portions thereof, may

be forfeited if an Award recipient does not remain enrolled with full-time status and in good standing at
the same doctoral program for the entire period of the award. It is the obligation of all applicants to
ensure that applying for the Award, participating in this Program and, as applicable, received an
Award, complies with all laws, rules and regulations of the jurisdiction in which such applicant is a
legal resident/national. Corporate entities are not eligible and have no right to claim any Award won by

Conditions and the decisions of Facebook.
