Build Your AI Skills
American students, workers, and educators are foundational to ensuring our nation’s leadership in AI. The Biden-Harris Administration has resources to help U.S. students and workers prepare for and enter careers in AI and related fields, as well as to support educators and institutions navigating the field.
Resources for Students
The DSSI at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory supports undergraduate and graduate internships on projects of national importance in machine learning, statistics, and high-performance computing.
DOE’s CSGF fellowship supports doctoral students in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems, including research in development and applications of AI.
The Department of Defense’s (DOD) SMART program is an educational and workforce development opportunity for STEM students, offering scholarships for undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students pursuing a degree in one of 24 STEM disciplines, including several related to AI. SMART scholars receive full tuition, annual stipends, and guaranteed employment with the DOD after graduation.
DOE’s SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory or facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission, including AI.
Through the National Science Foundation’s partnership with Activate, this program supports budding entrepreneurs for two years, providing them mentorship, stipends, and access to vital research tools, equipment, facilities, and expertise through collaboration with host laboratories.
