For all eligibility requirements, please see the full Terms and Conditions for the program.
The program takes place 100% online.
You can work from wherever you want to, as long as you have access to a working internet connection. Depending on where you live, you may also choose to participate in optional in-person meet-ups with your scholarship classmates.
The scholarship program is structured in two parts:
Phase 1: 15,000 Challenge Scholarships
The first phase of this scholarship provides 2-months of access to a curated path of custom Udacity courses tailored to your skill level. We’ve hand-picked our best resources for learning web or Android development and arranged them in a learning path that only scholarship students have access to.
Phase 2: 500 Full Nanodegree Scholarships
The top 500 students from the first phase of the scholarship program earn an additional 6-month scholarship to one of four Nanodegree Programs: Front-End Web Developer, Mobile Web Specialist, Android Basics Nanodegree or Android Developer. Access to these Nanodegree programs includes expert project reviews, mentorship, and community support.
Applications close on April 24, 2018.
Scholarship recipients will be announced on May 2, 2018.
Class for scholarship recipients will begin on May 8, 2018.
Phase 1 of this scholarship program provides a custom, curated path of multiple Udacity courses tailored to your skill level. We’ve hand-picked our best resources from Udacity and Google for learning web or Android development and arranged them in a learning path that only scholarship students have access to. Additionally, some scholarship recipients will have access to an Andela Learning Community, which connects students for in person study sessions and events and technical support.
After the initial 2-month Phase 1 of the program ends, follow-up scholarships will be provided for the Front-End Web Developer, Mobile Web Specialist, Android Basics, and Android Developer Nanodegree programs. Students will be evaluated based on successful completion of lessons and quizzes in Phase 1 in addition to their active participation and support of classmates in the student community. Participation can include everything from participation in an Andela Learning Community, writing about your experience through blog posts, Twitter, or other social media, or something else that shows us you have the drive and determination to make it through a complete Nanodegree program.
Between instructional content, quizzes, and other course-related activity, we estimate that investing 15 hours/week will enable you to proceed through the program at a successful pace, finishing before your 2-month scholarship ends in Phase 1. If you are awarded a follow-up Nanodegree scholarship after the initial 2-month Phase 1, you will have an additional 6-months to complete the Nanodegree program.
After class starts you can study on your own schedule so long as you complete the course within 2 months. That is to say, you’ll have complete access to the course directly in your classroom 24 hours a day. We understand that students have different schedules and will work on their course at different times and on different days. What’s important is that students make constant progress each and every week and get through all the content before the end of the 2-month long Phase 1.
These scholarships do not guarantee you a job. But Udacity students often do get jobs after graduating from programs like these. Check out some student stories.
While the Nanodegree programs offered as part of this scholarship will prepare you for current Google Developer certifications, you will have to take a separate certification exam to be certified by Google.
Note that Google Developer exam fees are not included as part of the scholarship program. You can learn more about Google Developer certification here.
In order to be fair to all scholarship applicants and recipients we do not extend deadlines.
