DeepMind Science, Technology and Society Scholarships 

The Windsor Fellowship is working with University College London (UCL) to offer scholarships funded by DeepMind to students who will be the undertaking the MSc Science, Technology and Society (STS) for 2022/2023, and who have an interest in AI.
