Each Summer AI for Good Foundation invites Undergraduate, Graduate and Post-Doctoral applicants for our competitive Summer Fellowship Program. 

In addition, AI for Good Foundation welcomes interns in Policy, Outreach, and Fund Development on a year-round basis. 

The participants are able to gain real world experience at the intersection of Sustainability and Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning. 

The participants also get to meet peers and mentors around the world, while having their work showcased at Global & International Forums.

The Sustainable Development Policy Fellowship

A great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to gain hands-on experience in international sustainable development policy work. Interns work on city and national level initiatives and build these out as perennial programs for our non-profit. They conduct research, interviews, and program implementation in real time.

The Artificial Intelligence Research Fellowship

An opportunity for students with prior experience implementing and deploying machine learning, statistical inference, econometric, and other AI technologies to apply their skills to a meaningful social challenge. Many projects will be built from the ground up, interacting with world experts in the relevant disciplines to develop a plan and implementation.
