Program Description

AI4ALL opens doors to the artificial intelligence industry for underrepresented talent through education and mentorship. We nurture a global community of students who learn AI fundamentals and who then apply those principles to solve society's most pressing problems in deeply innovative and ethical ways. AI4ALL programs have empowered over 7,750 people globally with AI education. As of 2019, AI4ALL summer programs run at 11 top universities around North America. Eighty-one percent of alumni are interested in a career in AI after completing the program, and many are already making significant impacts in the field, from educating their peers to winning "best paper" at top AI conferences. In October 2019, AI4ALL launched the Open Learning Program, providing communities with free, approachable, project-based AI education.

By telling a new story about who can be a maker in AI, we're creating tomorrow's AI leaders and changing technology's future. AI4ALL has received funding from Melinda Gates/Pivotal Ventures, Jensen and Lori Huang,, Prudential Financial, Microsoft, EY, and The Micron Foundation, among others and has been featured in the New York Times, TIME, CNN, USA Today, and The Atlantic.


For Counselors & Teachers:

March 8th, we celebrated International Women's Day and AI4ALL's third birthday. Though we planned for this to be a celebratory time, we want to acknowledge the impact of COVID-19 on our AI4ALL family, globally.

The health and safety of the AI4ALL family, our partners, and the general public remains our top priority. We are working with our participating universities regarding summer programming plans and, as it evolves for each site, we will record updates on the summer programs page. Please note, all sites maintain university protocols independent of the relationship with AI4ALL. Specific questions regarding applications, tuition, or site safety plans should be directed to the university. AI4ALL can support with contact information for sites, if needed.

Things we are doing:

  • Remaining in close communication with our participating universities to be informed of most recent developments;
  • Developing geographic specific contingency plans with universities;
  • Designing an AI & COVID-19 virtual lesson plan for high school students;
  • Identifying potential virtual opportunities with faculty and program leads; and
  • Celebrating our AI4ALL alumni and their work.
  • At this time, we are still recruiting high school student leaders for our summer programs at 16 top-tier AI university sites. See the list below and sign up for summer program updates here. Attached is a flyerto share with your students and their families. Your students can also sign up for AI4ALL's Open Learning program and build a virtual community with other future change-makers in AI!
