Invent the Future: AI Scholars Program

Invent the Future is a two-week summer enrichment program for Grade 11 girls at Simon Fraser University's Burnaby campus. During this Artificial Intelligence (AI) Scholars Program, 24 girls will explore the world of AI through team projects, industry field trips, and connecting with mentors and industry experts in a supportive yet challenging environment. Scholars will live on campus during the program. 2019 dates have not yet been announced.

Students from rural or remote communities are especially encouraged to apply.

AI4ALL is a non-profit working to increase diversity and inclusion in the field of AI. Simon Fraser University is one of six universities participating in AI4ALL’s official roll out in 2018, and the only one in Canada. Stanford University; Princeton University; University of California, Berkeley; Carnegie Mellon University; and Boston University are the five American schools partnering with AI4ALL.

“AI is about to make the biggest changes to humanity, and we’re missing a whole generation of diverse technologists and leaders.”

– Fei-Fei Li, Co-Founder of AI4ALL
