DeepMind Fellowship Apply by December 16, 2020

UC San Diego’s Computer Science and Engineering Department (CSE) is encouraging students interested in machine learning to apply for the DeepMind Fellowship program, launched earlier this year with a generous gift from DeepMind, a London-based leader in artificial intelligence (AI) research and how it’s applied in the real world.

The fellowships are designed to support machine learning (ML) graduate students. Students from cultural, racial, linguistic, geographic and socioeconomic backgrounds and genders who are underrepresented in ML graduate education are encouraged to apply. DeepMind Fellows receive two-year fellowships that cover tuition along with a stipend, a travel grant and access to a DeepMind mentor. 

UC San Diego is currently one of just three universities in the United States and one of five in North America selected to participate in this program.

Interested students need to apply for UC San Diego admission by December 16 to be considered for the DeepMind Fellowship Program. Fellowship recipients will be selected by CSE’s Master of Science selection committee.
