SCHOLARSHIPS

We appreciate the support from Google and Priberam, thanks to which a limited number of scholarships will be provided. Detailed instructions about how to apply will be posted shortly.

  • In partnership with Google, we will provide a limited number of grants that cover the registration. The grants may cover travel, accommodation, and registration expenses. Only PhD and Post-Doc students are eligible (priority will be given to PhD students). Grants will be given according to the relevance of the applicant’s work in the fields of machine learning and natural language processing.
  • Priberam will also provide grants covering the registration (no travel expenses will be covered by these grants). Any master student from a Portuguese institution is eligible, as long as she/he does not have any affiliation to a lab that could provide the funding. Preference will be given to early-year students who have top academic performance and interests in machine learning and/or natural language processing.
  • Amazon’s Berlin Machine Learning organization is also proud to sponsor selected students from Europe to attend LxMLS. PhD and Post Doc students from Europe may apply. Preference for the scholarship will be given to students having relevant work in the areas of machine learning or natural language processing
