Open to current undergraduates from any discipline, the Equitech Scholars program will delve into data science, artificial intelligence, and communication — from building foundational programming knowledge to considering social and ethical perspectives on technological interventions. Whether you aspire to launch a startup, shape public policy, or make a difference in the tech sector, the Equitech Scholars program will equip you with the practical skills, insights, and network that will empower you to address real-world challenges at scale.

We offer:

  • Individualized Mentorship: Our small cohort-based, synchronous classes ensure personalized attention from faculty and peers, fostering an environment where you can thrive and grow. Equitech Scholars span the globe, and you learn from scientists and educators from the Aspen Institute, Caltech, the University of Cambridge, the University of Chicago, and the University of Oxford.
  • Interdisciplinary Learning: Explore diverse perspectives and acquire a holistic understanding of technology's role in shaping our society, preparing you to make meaningful contributions across various fields.
  • Make Your Impact: Collaborate with like-minded peers from diverse backgrounds and cultures, amplifying the potential of your ideas and making a positive difference in the world.
