The Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers (KPCB) Engineering Fellows Program is one of technology’s most prestigious fellowships, with only 54 students chosen in 2017 from a pool of 2,000. This year, participation from Brown University's Department of Computer Science (Brown CS) set a new record for the number of wins in a year: undergraduate students Michael Markell, Noah Picard, and Hannah Tipperman were all selected as fellows.

Despite the program's title, it's open to outstanding students who are studying computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, or other fields related to software development. Hannah and Michael are CS concentrators; Noah concentrates in both CS and mathematics. They'll join other students from across the country in Silicon Valley for a work experience (participating companies span the industry and the alphabet from Airbnb to Zumper) that will be supplemented with events and programming led by CEOs and executives from KPCB portfolio companies and KPCB Partners.
