(Updated 02/08/22) The AWS Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) Scholarship programme, in collaboration with Intel and Udacity, aims to help underserved and underrepresented high school and college students learn foundational ML concepts to prepare them for careers in AI and ML.
18 Oct 2022
Participants can earn up to two of 2,500 scholarships awarded annually to assist them in pursuing a career in AI & ML.
2,000 students per year will receive scholarships for the Udacity AI Programming with Python Nanodegree programme (a $4,000 USD value). This four-month collaborative virtual course teaches programming tools and techniques fundamental to machine learning, with support from Udacity teachers in weekly group sessions.
500 of the top performing students who achieve the highest scores in the first Udacity Nanodegree programme can earn a second, more advanced Udacity Nanodegree. This six-month course combines deep learning and ML engineering concepts to prepare students for a career in AI & ML.
All 2,000 students in the programme will receive tailored mentoring and career guidance through monthly “Ask Me Anything” seminars with top industry experts. Topics range from career development and networking, promoting diversity and equity in the tech workforce, to technical experience in the field.
Participants in the second Nanodegree programme will receive a full year of one-on-one mentorship from an AWS or Intel employee who will provide guidance for both coursework and preparing for a career in technology.
