Field of Study:

STEM is a field that continues to lack diversity despite boasting many career opportunities and opportunities for innovation.

There remains a gap in students’ levels of access to higher education in STEM fields, with Black and African American students facing particular limitations. As artificial intelligence and machine learning become increasingly impactful in our society, diversifying the perspectives of professionals working with these tools is crucial so that AI and ML can be used to raise awareness of social causes.

This scholarship aims to narrow the gap in access to STEM education so that all students can pursue the careers of their dreams.

Any African American high school or undergraduate student who is studying STEM (particularly AI and machine learning) may apply for this scholarship opportunity, but applicants from the U.S. Virgin Islands and those who attend(ed) Charlotte Amalie High School are preferred.

To apply, tell us about your hands-on experience with AI and machine learning, especially if this background relates to coding or creating an app. Additionally, tell us how you imagine you’ll make an impact in the field.
