As an alumnus and philanthropist, Jonathan Feuer has been an ardent supporter of Warwick’s progress since his graduation in 1983 with a BSc Degree in Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics, and Economics (MORSE). Since then, he has generously contributed to Warwick’s scholarship programme and funded vital medical research into Diabetes Insipidus at Warwick Medical School.

Jonathan is passionate about the opportunities artificial intelligence offers. With the Feuer International Scholarship in AI, Jonathan is keen to establish a prestigious cohort of multidisciplinary researchers with the ability to apply academic excellence and rigour to real world challenges.
My experience at Warwick offered a fantastic academic basis for my career since then. Now that I can give something back, I am delighted to fund this programme which I believe will help establish Warwick as a leading university in the field of Artificial Intelligence not just in the UK but also globally.
By investing in the Feuer AI Scholarships at Warwick, Jonathan is offering a unique chance to the best and brightest students from varying disciplines to make a difference in the field of AI.
Warwick's Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Stuart Croft, says:
We’re very excited about the potential of this newly extended scholarship programme and are grateful to Jonathan for his visionary philanthropy. His commitment to bringing excellent doctoral students to Warwick in the interdisciplinary area of Artificial Intelligence is outstanding.”
