The Seattle University AI4ALL is an experience for high school students interested in criminal law and artificial intelligence (AI). Throughout the two weeks, students will learn about the intersection of modern technology and criminal justice issues, such as bias and equity. This program is project-focused and will include engagement with law enforcement and Seattle area tech companies.

Seattle University celebrates academic excellence achieved through diversity.  Consistent with this value, we strive to make our high school programs accessible to all students. Thanks to the support of our generous sponsors, we offer full, holistic, merit scholarships to students who need financial assistance to attend.  Priority is given to students who are under-represented in higher education, including Black/African American, Hmong American, Latino/Hispanic, Indigenous/Native American, Nepalese American, and Pacific Islander descents. Please see the Scholarship page for more detail about how to apply.
