The funding covers full scholarships, equipment and computation costs for students. Our scholars will be DeepMind scholars, and have opportunities to connect with DeepMind’s researchers and engineers for mentoring and support.
Beyond scholarships, the program will draw on DeepMind’s world-leading expertise in AI for Science.
The initial focus areas of the program will be AI and machine learning in cosmology, epidemiology and ecology.
Students from across Africa
We invite students from across Africa to apply to be part of the August 2024 cohort and become one of our 40 DeepMind Scholars for the 2024-25 academic year!
The deadline for the first round of the application process is 11:59 PM SAST on 29 March.
