Details: Windsor Fellowship is working with University College London to offer scholarships funded by DeepMind to students who will be starting at UCL in September 2021 on the Neuroscience MSc and who have an interest in AI. Students interested in these scholarships 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.

Application Procedure: Windsor Fellowship administers the application process. They assess and shortlist applications based on financial need and socio-economic background. Staff associated with the MSc Neuroscience will make the final selection from this shortlist. This will be based on candidates’ interest in, and knowledge of, neuroscience and AI, as determined by answers to the question on the application form.

Restrictions: If you meet the other criteria for award of this scholarship, in order for you to be awarded the scholarship, we will also require to check that your name, and your parents’ names do not appear on the following sanctions lists: https://sanctionssearch.ofac.treas.gov and https://sanctionssearch.ofsi.hmtreasury.gov.uk
