Google DeepMind AI Scholarships 2021 for International Students
The Google DeepMind AI Scholarships 2021 will enable the next generation of AI researchers and engineers. Apply below
Application Deadline: Varies
About the Award: Increasing representation in AI offers a huge opportunity to bring diverse values, hopes, and concerns into conversations about the design and deployment of AI – and this is critical if AI is going to be a technology that benefits everyone. We also believe this is key to the potential for AI being one of the most important technologies ever invented.
We established the scholarship programme in an effort to help build a stronger and more inclusive AI community, who can bring a wider range of experiences to the fields of AI and computer science. The scholarships provide financial support to students from underrepresented groups seeking to study graduate courses relating to AI and adjacent fields. Scholars are also offered support from a DeepMind mentor, and have opportunities to attend leading AI academic conferences and DeepMind events.
Type: Masters, PhD
- These scholarships aim to support talented students from groups currently underrepresented in AI by removing barriers to access as they progress from undergraduate to postgraduate study.
- In each region, given local circumstances, individual universities may offer scholarships to students from varying underrepresented groups. Very broadly, these groups may span gender, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic background, as well as students from certain regions with lower AI participation (such as Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America).
Selection Criteria: Universities offer scholarships to promising students from underrepresented groups who need funding to take up a place on a postgraduate course relating to AI.
Eligible Countries: International
Number of Awards: Not specified
Value of Award: The scholarships aim to ensure that scholars receive full financial support (tuition, stipend or living costs, and a grant for necessary equipment and attendance at an academic conference). Scholars are generally supported financially for the duration of their study, from the year they join their course. In a few cases, where graduate funding is already available through the university or department, DeepMind scholarships serve to enhance the existing funding, support the educational experience, and give the scholar the opportunity to focus more fully on their studies.
How to Apply: Scholarships are offered by participating universities directly to applicants for specific AI-related courses. Universities make information about upcoming DeepMind scholarships available when these opportunities are open.
