In 2019 Stellenbosch University became the first institution in Africa to participate in the DeepMind scholarship programme. Each year a select number of students from Africa are funded to pursue either a structured Masters degree, a research Masters degree, or a PhD at Stellenbosch University, with a focus on the theory and/or application of machine learning.

News articles about the DeepMind scholarships at Stellenbosch University can be found here and here.

Scholarship applications for 2023 have closed, but do keep an eye on this website for future opportunities.
