CENG Receives $1,000 Community Impact Grant from AI4ALL
By Michelle Zhu, December 9, 2017
The Computer Engineers of the Next Generation Club is a proud recipient of the inaugural AI4ALL community impact grant of $1,000. AI4ALL is a non-profit organization whose mission statement is "to increase diversity and inclusion in artificial intelligence and create pipelines for underrepresented talent through education and mentorship program".
The AI4ALL Community Impact grant is given to selected alumni of their SAILORS program, a summer outreach program at Stanford University that teaches about Artificial Intelligence (AI) to rising 10th grade girls. The purpose of the grant was to help alumni in promoting their own AI clubs and events.
CENG received the grant as well as the support of AI4ALL. The organization's project manager, Nicole Halmi, congratulated CENG for "offering a variety of (coding) courses" and "impacting traditionally underrepresented students". She will be connecting us to underrepresented computer engineers for our "Inspire" interviews that show how they overcome the obstacles in pursuing their passion in the Computer Science (CS) field. These videos will be presented in the Parent Showcase at the end of the seven-week coding sessions to inspire underrepresented students to major in CS.
