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 starting at UCL in September 2020 on the Science, Technology and Society MSc and who have an interest in ethics and AI.
These 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.
Each scholarship is worth £31,140. The value of the scholarship includes the cost of tuition fees (£12,120), a maintenance grant of £15,520, a one-off academic travel grant of £2,000, and a one-off equipment grant of £1,500.
The scholarships are available for course offer holders who are from at least one of the following two groups:
1. Students of an African or Caribbean heritage
2. Students from homes with an annual income of less than £25,000
The scholarships are open to Home (UK) and EU students.
Next Steps and How to Apply
Windsor Fellowship will assess and shortlist applications based on financial need and socio-economic background.
Staff in the UCL Department of Science and Technology 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.
