    The Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers (KPCB) Engineering Fellows Program is one of technology’s most prestigious fellowships, with only 51 students chosen in 2018 from a pool of almost 3,000. This year, undergraduate students Lauren Ho and Nina Polshakova were selected from Brown University's Department of Computer Science (Brown CS), and they join winners from previous years that include Michael Chang, Michael Markell, Noah Picard, and Hannah Tipperman.

    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: Lauren and Nina are both computer science concentrators. 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.
