Applications submitted will be considered for both admission in one of the Ph.D. Programs and also for a CMU Portugal Scholarship.
The CMU Portugal Program has a decentralized applications process for admission in which each Ph.D. program manages its own application process. Applications are submitted directly to CMU. To apply, follow the next steps:
- Determine which dual degree Ph.D. Program you are interested;
- Select the Ph.D. Program you are interested in in the table below and you will be directed towards that Ph.D.´s applications page in the CMU website.
While staying in Portugal, the accepted candidate will receive the fellowship directly from FCT. While pursuing their studies at Carnegie Mellon, the Ph. D. students will receive the FCT funding through the home department of the doctoral program in which they are enrolled. All the admission requirements and deadlines are available below in “terms of the call”.
Early deadlines with reduced application fees are available for the following Ph.D. Programs: November 30 (Noon EST) for Computer Science, Robotics, Software Engineering, and Language Technologies; December 15 (Noon EST) for Electrical and Computer Engineering.
