DeepMind is pleased to offer the DeepMind Scholarship, fully-funded scholarships for students studying AI-related fields, through the Cambridge Trust.
The scholarship programme is part of an effort to build a stronger and more inclusive AI community, to bring a wider range of experiences to the fields of AI and computer science. As such, the scholarships fully fund female and/or Black students to study AI-related fields at the University of Cambridge, these groups being currently under-represented. Scholars are also offered support from a DeepMind mentor, and have opportunities to attend leading AI academic conferences and DeepMind events. More information is available on the DeepMind Scholarship website.
DeepMind Scholarships are available for students undertaking a Master’s degree at Cambridge in Advanced Computer Science, Machine Learning and Machine Intelligence, or Scientific Computing, or a PhD in Computer Science or other adjacent fields which are relevant to DeepMind’s aims.
