DeepMind Fellowships

Computer Science and Engineering is proud to offer two DeepMind Fellowships for Fall 2023!


These fellowships were made possible by a recent generous gift from DeepMind, a London-based leader in artificial intelligence (AI) research and how it’s applied in the real world. 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.

The fellowships are designed to support machine learning (ML) masters 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. 

See current DeepMind Fellows here.

Who’s eligible: Admitted MS students specializing in Machine Learning who have demonstrated meaningful contributions to diversity and inclusion will be considered for DeepMind Fellowships.

How to apply: To be considered for a DeepMind Fellowship, applicants must (1) submit an MS application by the application deadline, (2) Complete the “Additional Educational Experiences” section of the application  (highlighting how the applicant overcame barriers, and/or demonstrating a commitment to diversity), and (3) Select AI/Machine Learning as an Interest Area.
