We launched the Palantir Future Scholarship in 2016 to support and encourage students from racial/ethnic communities underrepresented in STEM. Building off of four successful years of providing scholarships and broadening access to students beginning careers in technology, we are expanding our commitment with an immersive Fellowship program designed to empower students with the technical and real world skills needed for interviewing in the technology sector.
Ten Fellows will be awarded $7,000 to support their education and invited to participate in a 6-week fully-remote program, designed to prepare them to successfully interview for software engineering roles at Palantir and other tech firms. Curriculum will include interactive sessions on technical and open-ended problem solving, systems design, sessions on how to navigate behavioral interviews, how to bring your authentic self to work, advocating for yourself, creating community and belonging, etc., along with resume critiques. Programing may be completed alongside other commitments (classes, work, internship, etc.), and we estimate the time requirements with us to be 3-5 hours per week. Every Fellow who has completed the program will be invited to an accelerated interview process for a Palantir internship or full-time opportunity. We encourage students attending US-based Minority Serving Institutions to apply.
The Future Fellowship is open to any student who meets all of the eligibility criteria below:
Identify as a member of a racial/ethnic community underrepresented in STEM (including, but not limited to, Black/African-American, Latinx/Hispanic, and Indigenous heritage, e.g. Native American, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian)*
Are an actively enrolled student on track to graduate with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution in 2022 or 2023
Applicants must be majoring in or plan to major in the fields of Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a closely related technical field
Have completed or are currently enrolled in a Data Structures course, with some exposure to lists, arrays, hash tables, hash maps, stacks, queues, graphs, trees, heaps, sorts, searches, and traversals (BFS, DFS); and recursion and iterative approaches
Have not been a Palantir scholarship finalist in the past. Note: You will not be considered a past finalist if you apply for multiple Palantir scholarships this season
Are available for a fully-remote 6-week long program requiring 3-5 hours per week between July and August 2021
The 2021 application period is now closed. The ten Fellows selected will be announced in early April 2021. Please check back later in the year for more information about the 2022 application period.
