DeepMind, the leading British artificial intelligence company, has renewed its commitment to supporting students at the University of Oxford following the success of its scholarship programme for under-represented groups in AI.

Four more DeepMind graduate scholarships for students wishing to pursue a master’s degree in the Department of Computer Science will be made available for students commencing courses in 2022–23. A DPhil scholarship will also be funded for a student undertaking either a DPhil in Engineering Science, a DPhil in Computer Science, or in the Autonomous Intelligent Machines and Systems EPSRC Centre of Doctoral Training (CDT).

The DeepMind scholarship programme is designed to support talented students from under-represented groups to pursue graduate studies in AI-related fields, with the aim of building a stronger and more inclusive AI community. In addition to financial assistance, scholars are also offered support from a DeepMind mentor and have the opportunity to attend DeepMind events.

Professor Leslie Ann Goldberg, Head of the Department of Computer Science, says: ‘We are very grateful to DeepMind for supporting these scholarships. Our goal is to provide an outstanding education to the best students, irrespective of their origin or background. There are still many under-represented groups in computer science and we are grateful to DeepMind for helping students from these groups to reach their potential.’
