Third edition of DeepMind scholarships

The DeepMind scholarships are aimed at women interested in pursuing a master's degree at the University of Warsaw, linked to machine learning research. This year they will be awarded for the fourth time. The deadline for applications is 5 November.

The DeepMind Scholarship Programme enables you to connect with researchers and engineers and to study and conduct research in machine learning at leading universities. In the 2023/2024 academic year, two scholarships will be awarded to women interested in pursuing a master's degree at UW who wish to specialise in machine learning and intend to conduct research in this area.


Together for the development of artificial intelligence

- We are delighted to continue our collaboration with DeepMind in this important scholarship programme. Our faculty is determined to contribute to the removal of barriers to women's careers in computer science,' says Prof Paweł Strzelecki, dean of the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw (MIM UW).


Projects selected in the previous edition of the programme


Ms Julia Jakubowska is a second-year Master's student in Applications of Physics in Biology and Medicine (Neuroinformatics) at the Department of Physics. Her project focuses on investigating the use of natural language processing methods (in particular transforms) for the analysis and classification of electroencephalographic (EEG) signal pathology. Her supervisor from DeepMind is Dr Matko Bošnjak, and on the UW side is Dr Jaroslaw Żygierewicz.

The second scholarship holder, Ms Julia Jurkowska, is also studying applications of physics in biology and medicine with a specialisation in neuroinformatics. She is using the knowledge she gained during her bachelor's and master's studies in this field in research on developmental dyslexia. She took part in a project to verify the neural noise hypothesis in this disorder conducted at the Laboratory of Neurobiology of Language Processes at the IBD PAS, where she was involved in both EEG testing and analysis of the recorded signals. 

The project is a continuation of the research described above, from which these signals are used as a dataset for explanatory machine learning models. The aim is to select a classification algorithm with its hyperparameters that will satisfactorily identify the EEG signals of typically reading subjects and those with identified developmental dyslexia.

The scholarship holder, Ms Julia Jurkowska, is supervised by Prof Jarosław Żygierewicz on behalf of the UW, and by Borja Ibarz from DeepMind.


Fourth edition of scholarships

Two more scholarships will be awarded in the 2023/2024 academic year. Students can apply for the scholarship who:

  • have citizenship or right of residence in one of the Member States of the European Union;

  • have been admitted in the academic year 2023/2024 to the first year of second-cycle studies at the University of Warsaw, in one of the following fields of study:

    • Data Science and Business Analytics,

    • Computer Science,

    • Mathematics,

    • Bioinformatics and Systems Biology,

    • Machine learning,

    • Applications of Physics in biology and medicine

 and intend to focus on research related to machine learning or artificial intelligence.

Each scholarship is €28250 and includes:

  • a monthly stipend of approximately €1,000 (maximum 24 months);

  • research travel funds of €2,400;

  • €1650 for research or computer equipment.

The scholarships will be awarded to two female students who will be studying at the University of Warsaw in the academic years 2023/2024 and 2024/2025, conducting research related to machine learning and artificial intelligence. To apply, please read the rules and regulations (in Polish) and send your application to deepmindfellow(at) by 5 November 2023.
