Criterios de admisibilidad

This call for proposals is open to established institutions from eligible countries across Africa that have a demonstrated ability and track record of managing international and/or regional scholarships and/or grants and of convening researchers from other African countries and the Global South.

Only institutions that meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the call document should submit an application to host the African AI4D Scholarships program.

 

Alcance

The goal of this call is to identify a program and financial manager for the AI4D Scholarships program. The host institution (“scholarships manager”) will design and administer a scholarships program that will foster the talent needed to meet a growing demand for responsible artificial intelligence (AI) for development research and innovation in African public universities.

The African AI4D Scholarships program will provide support to the next generation of AI and related disciplines (such as machine learning) academics, practitioners, and students who are focused on responsible AI innovation for sustainable development. Responsible AI strives to be inclusive, rights-based, and sustainable in its development and implementation, ensuring that AI applications are leveraged for public benefit.

The program will support two scholarship activities: the African AI4D PhD Scholarships and the African AI4D Advanced Scholars Program.
