PHASE 1: SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATIONS COURSE
100% of applicants will gain access to the foundations course and can complete the foundations content at their own pace before the deadline of October 11, 2021. The course will help students develop object-oriented programming skills including writing clean and modularized code, understanding the fundamental aspects of machine learning, and also utilizing key AWS machine learning technologies, namely AWS AI Devices including AWS DeepRacer, AWS DeepLens, and AWS DeepComposer.
At the completion of the course, learners will receive a certificate for having completed the foundations course.
The first 150 to successfully complete the free course will also receive an AWS DeepLens device.
$35 AWS credits will be given to the first 2,500 who enroll in the course, for use in training AWS DeepRacer, for competition in the AWS DeepRacer League.
Finally, learners will receive instructions to take an online assessment quiz that will be used to select the top scorers who will receive a full scholarship for Udacity’s popular AWS Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree programme.
PHASE 2: FULL SCHOLARSHIP FOR A UDACITY NANODEGREE PROGRAMME
425 Scholarship participants who complete all programme content and receive top scores from the online assessment quiz from the foundational programme will earn a scholarship to the AWS Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree programme. Nanodegree programmes usually require several hours of work per week for the duration of the Nanodegree programme. This programme will offer world-class curriculum, a groundbreaking classroom experience, industry leading instructors, thorough project reviews and a full suite of career services.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
