Black in AI

The Black in AI Academic Program serves as a resource to support Black junior researchers as they apply to graduate programs, navigate graduate school, and enter the postgraduate job market. They conduct online information sessions, provide scholarships to cover costs related to applications, assign participants to peer and senior mentors, and share crowdsourced documents that demystify application processes. In addition to these efforts, they also conduct research studies to explore and expose the barriers that affect Black junior researchers, and advocate for structural changes to remove these barriers and foster equitable research environments.
