In order to qualify for the program, you must be an established, student-run organization with an existing member base. Additionally, your organization must fit the following requirements:

  • Demonstrated interest in AI
  • Access to NVIDIA hardware
  • A community sponsor or faculty advisor in a supervisory role

Individuals, including representatives for a university, university department, or corporation, do not qualify for the program.

Congratulations! We encourage you to spend some time organizing your leadership team, recruiting members, and creating the infrastructure for your organization before you submit an application. Organizations that have a clear mission and demonstrable success will be best equipped for this program.

The application found on our website is meant to be filled out once per organization, typically by the organization’s president or another member in a leadership position. Once an organization is approved, its individual members will go through a separate onboarding process in order to gain access to the program resources.

Currently, we are only accepting student organizations with access to NVIDIA hardware. This program places emphasis on the application of practical skills and project building. As such, your organization needs hardware in order to make the most of the program offerings.

We have found that there is a fair amount of turnover in many student organizations due to members graduating or leaving due to a lack of bandwidth. Having a community sponsor allows the NVIDIA Student Network team to maintain a consistent point of contact with your organization.
