This summer the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program announced the 2018 Guest Scholar recipient, Matthew Bui, Ph.D. Student and Graduate Fellow, University of Southern California – Los Angeles. The Guest Scholar Program began in 2001 as a scholarship initiative providing students of color the opportunity to develop their professional and academic careers in the fields of media and technology policy. Each year doctoral (or other advanced graduate program) students of color are invited to apply for a Guest Scholarship to attend the annual Aspen Institute Conference on Communications Policy.

Read Matthew’s piece on Next Generation Digital Infrastructure, in which he reflects on the discussions that took place at the Conference.
The Program is pleased to extend the Guest Scholarship to an individual interested in attending the 3rd Annual Aspen Institute Roundtable on Artificial Intelligence scheduled for February 11-13, 2019 in Santa Barbara, California. As a Guest Scholar, students are full participants in roundtable discussions. Scholars have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of competing tensions on important technology issues and get the opportunity to gain a network of professional colleagues.
Applications for the 2019 Guest Scholar program are now open for the AI 2019 Roundtable. For more information, and to apply, please see http://as.pn/guestscholar.
