DeepMind MSc Neuroscience Scholarships

The Windsor Fellowship is working with University College London (UCL) to offer scholarships funded by DeepMind to students who will be undertaking the MSc Neuroscience at UCL for 21/22, and who have an interest in AI. This MSc programme is heavily oversubscribed, therefore students interested in this scholarship are advised to apply as early as possible.

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 those groups that are under-represented in post-graduate studies.

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

The scholarships are available for UK (Home fee status) course applicants who are from at least one of the following under-represented groups within the MSc Neuroscience:


1.   Students from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) background

2.   Students from homes with an annual income of less than £25,000

Next Steps and How to Apply​
You must have, at least, completed the application to the MSc Neuroscience (including ensuring the references are uploaded) before applying for the scholarship separately. 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, depending on circumstances) with the Windsor Fellowship.

Staff associated with the MSc Neuroscience will make the final selection from this shortlist. This will be based on candidates’ interest in, and knowledge of, neuroscience and AI, as determined by answers to the question on the application form.
