DeepMind Scholarship Program for Underrepresented Students
“It’s an honor to be awarded the DeepMind Fellowship, and I’m especially excited to be joining such a vibrant, interdisciplinary community at CDS.”- Lily Zhang, CDS DeepMind Fellow 2020
“I’m so excited and grateful to be awarded the DeepMind Fellowship. The best thing about joining a supportive and inspiring community, such as CDS, is that we never run out of brilliant ideas. Just keep an open mind when going deep with data science.” — Boyang Yu, CDS DeepMind Fellow 2020
“I am very honored and humbled to receive the DeepMind Fellowship. I was very fortunate to work in different environments and learn from great mentors throughout my career. I am sure that the Center for Data Science at New York University will allow me to keep doing the same. Very excited to join CDS!” — Sanae Lotfi, CDS DeepMind Fellow 2020
CDS is thrilled to once again partner with DeepMind in offering a series of scholarships aimed at increasing representation of underrepresented students in higher education AI programs. Increasing representation in AI is a significant opportunity to bring diverse voices to the conversation, and ultimately shape continuing developments in AI as a technology that benefits everyone.
Obum Ekeke, University Relations and Educational Partnerships at DeepMind, said: “We strongly encourage students who might not otherwise be able to attend NYU to consider applying to the DeepMind scholarships. AI needs a diverse range of voices, perspectives and talents, and these scholarships will empower students from underrepresented backgrounds to access master’s level study in AI.”
DeepMind selected New York University’s Center for Data Science as a pioneer not only in the rapidly developing field of data science, but as a leader in recruiting a diverse cohort of students and researchers (for the first time in 2019, CDS welcomed a majority female cohort to its MS in Data Science incoming class). CDS is honored to be a part of this effort to enable the next generation of AI researchers and engineers, ultimately building a stronger and more inclusive AI community.
DeepMind was NYU CDS’ first industrial partner, sponsoring over 20 CDS master’s students to date. CDS DeepMind scholars are also offered support from a DeepMind mentor, and have opportunities to attend leading AI academic conferences and DeepMind events.
For 2021 entry, 2 fully-funded master’s scholarships will be available for CDS students from backgrounds underrepresented in AI, including DeepMind mentoring support and a grant for academic conference travel.
