About College Pathways

AI4ALL College Pathways is a new initiative designed to spark interest and increase persistence in AI-related careers for undergraduate students who represent new voices in AI. The program offerings are co-hosted with universities and will connect participants with an approachable introduction to AI, internships, career-readiness resources, and a supportive on-campus peer community.

How it Works

College Pathways programs support students to become leaders in AI who have a social impact and ethics lens and who have experience applying AI to their own areas of interest–from healthcare to public policy to tech. AI4ALL works with university partners to launch College Pathways programs on campus, providing experiential learning and career-building opportunities complementary to AI coursework your university already offers.
