The Feuer International Scholarship in AI

A ground-breaking international PhD Scholarship for innovative times

The Feuer International Scholarships in Artificial Intelligence are prestigious and highly competitive MPhil/PhD scholarships. Funded by successful Warwick alumnus Jonathan Feuer, they were established to create a group of extremely talented, academically brilliant, world-leading young researchers who will go on to have careers in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

If you are awarded a Feuer PhD Scholarship, you will have the chance to work alongside Warwick’s top researchers, who are some of the world’s sharpest minds and hold fellowships at the Alan Turing Institute in London. You will have access to industry partners, mentoring and potential investment opportunities.


"The Feuer Scholarship has given me the opportunity to start my PhD journey in a wonderfully supportive environment. I consider myself very fortunate to be working alongside committed smart peers, an enthusiastic and approachable supervisor, while enjoying the exciting possibilities for collaboration with the Alan Turing Institute and other universities. There are also numerous advantages that come with being well-funded and having open channels of communication with Jonathan Feuer himself. This is a dream scholarship for anyone interested in doing impactful AI research, and I highly recommend candidates from around the world to apply."

Aparajita Haldar, Feuer International Scholar in Artificial Intelligence


"Prior to beginning my PhD, I studied for an undergraduate degree in Data Science at Warwick. This exposed me to potential collaborations with forward-thinking statisticians, computer scientists, mathematicians and other academics, which is something the Feuer Scholarship also highlights as integral to its purpose. I worked alongside the Alan Turing Institute in the summer of 2019 on impactful data science projects, and hope to continue this work leveraging Warwick’s strong inter-disciplinary academic links, and the Turing’s network of excellent universities and inspiring academics. The Feuer Scholarship has empowered me to pursue this work in applications of statistics and computer science to societal issues, as well as contribute to the ethical and transparent development of cutting edge machine learning techniques."

Harry Wilde, Feuer International Scholar in Artificial Intelligence


"In 2014 I graduated with a BSc in Computer Science at the University of Lagos and an MSc in Information Technology at Carnegie Mellon University Africa in 2019. I also have over 4 years of experience as a Software Engineer and interned at IBM Research Lab during my master's program. In summer 2019, I worked at Imperial College London as a Data Science for Social Good Fellow where my team and I worked on quantifying traffic dynamics by processing short video footage of junctions in Central London. Currently I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick and Professor Stephen Jarvis is my primary supervisor. My key research interests are in the application of machine learning and computer vision in object detection and tracking."

Oluwafunmilola Kesa, Feuer International Scholar in Artificial Intelligence


"The Feuer International Scholarship in AI caught my attention while I was exploring PhD research opportunities. I was already keen to pursue my PhD at Warwick because the Computer Science department is world-renowned for its innovative AI research. I have chosen to start my career with a research focus rather than moving straight into a traditional Computer Science employment role, as I very much want to make a contribution to advancements in my fields of interest. My firm aspirations are to contribute new methods and models to the field of AI research, to engage with the relevant worldwide research communities, and to help create practical AI-based solutions to real-world problems."

Joe Oakley, Feuer International Scholar in Artificial Intelligence


“AI is driving advancements in the fields of engineering, technology, defence and security, financial services, health and wellbeing. Researchers at Warwick are behind many of these exciting developments. The students who are awarded Feuer International Scholarships in AI will have access to some of the brightest minds in the field. We are delighted to launch the programme and deliver such an exciting opportunity for our students.”

Professor Pamela Thomas, Pro Vice Chancellor (Research) and Professor of Physics, University of Warwick and Board of Trustees, Alan Turing Institute


“I am pleased to take the lead on behalf of Computer Science for the important Feuer International Scholarships in AI. Thank you so much, Jonathan, for supporting students to be entrepreneurial, take risks and draw on skills from other disciplines to solve key questions in data science and AI. The impact of Warwick’s research in the real world is vitally important. The experience that you bring, the opportunities, contacts and possibilities that you share, give these scholarships the edge and we are extremely grateful for your support.”

Professor Nathan Griffiths, Computer Science

AI at Warwick

Warwick is a leader in Artificial Intelligence and Big Data research, with academics working on AI at Warwick Business School, Warwick Manufacturing Group, Warwick Medical School and the Faculties of Science and Social Sciences. This work thrives on the foundations of our expertise in computer sciences, statistics and mathematics, which adds value to interdisciplinary projects. Some of our research projects showcased here are part of our activities as a founding partner at the Alan Turing Institute in London.

Data Science at Warwick

Warwick was the first university to offer an undergraduate Data Science degree in the UK. We have links with business and government and our core Computer Science degree has applications to digital forensics, social media analytics and the design of autonomous vehicles. We are;

  • First Data Science UG degree to be established in UK
  • 1st in UK for scientific outputs (in Computer Science REF 2014)
  • 2nd in the UK for computing research (REF 2014)

Alan Turing Institute

We are a founding partner of the Alan Turing Institute, the national institute for data science, with headquarters at the British Library.

Research at Warwick enhances and is enhanced by our relationship with the Alan Turing Institute, forging interdisciplinary links across departments and between institutes with expertise in data science. Through this research we contribute to advancements in engineering, technology, defence and security, smarter cities, financial services, health and wellbeing
