The Eric and Wendy Schmidt AI in Science Postdoctoral Fellowship is supported by a $148 million donation from Schmidt Futures to nine universities across the globe, including the University of Toronto (U of T). The Fellowship will then expand to more countries and continents.
Collectively, the program will initially support approximately 160 postdoctoral fellows, to learn and apply AI methods to their research. Each university site will select a new cohort, comprised of up to 20 Fellows, annually for up to six years.
Schmidt Futures bets early on exceptional people making the world better. Founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, Schmidt Futures is a philanthropic initiative that brings talented people together in networks to prove out their ideas and solve hard problems in science and society.
