Computer Science PhD Scholarships


The Windsor Fellowship is working with University College London (UCL) to offer two PhD scholarships targeted at the UCL Centre for Doctoral Training in Foundational AI.

The PGIM 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.

These PhD Scholarships will provide support towards tuition fees, maintenance grants and research expenses.



The scholarships are available for UK (Home fee status) course applicants who hold an offer for Postgraduate Research in Computer Science on a full-time basis:

Additionally, candidates must meet the following under-represented groups:

  1. From a household with an annual income of less than £42,875
  2. Demonstrate an interest in entrepreneurship


How to Apply
