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 Science, Technology and Society (STS) MSc for 2021/2022, and who have an interest in AI. Students interested in this scholarship are advised to apply to the course 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 STS Scholarships will cover tuition fees in full, and provide a £15,140 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 Science, Technology and Society:
1. Students of Black African or Black Caribbean heritage
2. Students from homes with an annual income of less than £25,000
Next Steps and How to Apply
Windsor Fellowship will assess and shortlist 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 Science, Technology and Society will make the final selection from this shortlist. This will be based on candidates’ interest in, and knowledge of, ethics and AI, as determined by answers to the question on the application form.
Deadline for completed applications is Tuesday 1 June 2021 at 9am (BST)
