DeepMind Computer Science Scholarships 

The Windsor Fellowship is working with University College London (UCL) to offer scholarships funded by DeepMind to students who will be undertaking specific courses within the Department of Computer Science.

 

The DeepMind Scholarships are positive action initiatives to help UCL ensure that it can attract and support students from all sections of the community, particularly groups that are under-represented in post-graduate studies.

 

DeepMind Computer Science Scholarships will cover tuition fees in full and provide a £16,000 maintenance stipend. Additionally, £2,000 is provided to cover attendance at relevant academic conferences (either in person or virtually). A further £1,500 is provided as an equipment grant.

Eligibility
 

The scholarships are available for UK (Home fee status) course applicants who will be undertaking one of the following courses on a full-time basis:

  1. MSc Machine Learning

  2. MSc Data Science and Machine Learning

  3. MSc Computational Statistics and Machine Learning

 

Additionally, candidates must be from at least one of the following under-represented groups within Computer Science:

  1. Identify as British Black-African or British Black-Caribbean heritage 

  2. Identify as female

  3. From a household with an annual income of less than £25,000

Scholarship Application 
  • You must have submitted an application to a relevant UCL Computer Science course (as outlined above) before applying for the scholarship separately. You will be required to provide your UCL student number as part of the application process.
  • Please click here to complete a scholarship application form and Financial Information Document by 6 June 2022 at 9am (BST)
  • Windsor Fellowship will assess and shortlist the scholarship applications based on financial need and socio-economic background. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview (either in person or virtually) with the Windsor Fellowship.
  • All applicants will be updated on the outcome of their application by the end of September. 

Important notices

 

Please note that UCL ordinarily requires those with confirmed offers to pay a tuition fee deposit of £2,000 within 4 weeks of an offer being made. Please contact cs.pgt-admissions@ucl.ac.uk ideally within 1 week of receiving an offer to confirm your scholarship application, so UCL’s systems can be updated to defer your deposit date before it becomes due. This will postpone your deposit due date until after scholarship decisions have been made, at which point, non-awardees will become liable for the full amount of the deposit.

In addition to meeting the eligibility criteria listed above, we will check that your name and your parents’ names do not appear on the following sanctions lists: https://sanctionssearch.ofac.treas.gov/ and https://sanctionssearch.ofsi.hmtreasury.gov.uk/
