#JoinYourAIFuture Data Science Scholarships
About the Data Science Scholarships
The MSc Data Science conversion course at Coventry University is part of the #JoinYourAIFuture programme, funded by the Office for Students. #JoinYourAIFuture is a national recruitment campaign to help address the shortage of AI and data specialists in the UK.
An important aim of the campaign is to increase the number of people from underrepresented groups in the AI and data science fields, and to encourage graduates from diverse backgrounds to consider a future in these occupations.
The Office for Students has made 1,000 scholarships available across a number of Universities to help achieve this aim and applicants to this course at Coventry University may apply for a scholarship of £10,000, to be paid in instalments to assist students with the financial aspects of studying this degree.
Applications for scholarships will initially be reviewed using a points-based system. Priority for these awards will be given to applicants in the following categories:
- Female students
- Black students (as defined by HESA codes: 21; 22; 29; 41; 42)
- Disabled students
Consideration will also be given to applicants who meet other underrepresented criteria in the following secondary categories:
- Students from POLAR Q1 and Q2
- Care experienced students
- Estranged students
- Gypsy, Roma, Traveller students
- Children from military families, veterans and partners of military personnel.
