Scholarships for women in Artificial Intelligence

The #WeAllFit Scholarship program for the October AI Engineer Bootcamp is made possible thanks to the support of Spaces Port Olímpic

The world needs you.

Currently, only 22% of the world’s AI professionals are women. At Akademy.AI we profoundly dislike this statistic and, as part of our AI ethics pledge, we are committed to ensuring future gender parity in the field. That is why we are offering a full scholarship for our 10 weeks AI Engineer Bootcamp.

The application process for the October cohort is now closed.
