  • Who is eligible for these scholarships?

    To receive one of these scholarships, you must be a current resident of one of the 28 EU countries, 4 EFTA countries or Russia, Egypt, Israel and Turkey. You must also be at least 18 years old and complete the application in full. Please see the Terms and Conditions for the full list of countries and eligibility requirements.

  • Where does the program take place?

    The program takes place 100% online. You can work from wherever you want to, as long as you have a working internet connection.

  • How does this scholarship program work?

    The scholarship program is structured in two parts:

    Phase 1: 60,000 Challenge Scholarships

    The first phase of this scholarship provides 3-months of access to one of four Udacity courses: Intro to HTML + CSS, Offline Web Applications, Android Basics and Developing Android Apps. Scholarship recipients in these courses will receive a robust community experience supported by dedicated Community Managers, Udacity mentor support, and a chance to qualify for a full Nanodegree scholarship.

    Phase 2: 6,000 Nanodegree Scholarships

    The top 6,000 students in the program earn an additional 6-month scholarship to one of four Nanodegree Programs: Front-End Web Developer, Mobile Web Specialist, Android Basics Nanodegree and Android Developer. The full-scholarships will include project reviews, mentorship and community support.

  • How is Phase 1 of this scholarship different from Udacity's single course offerings?

    Udacity's single courses consists of lessons, videos and quizzes but are not supplemented with staff support or resources. Phase 1 of this scholarship provides premium access to a supported environment in the form of a unified cohort experience, community managers, mentors and the opportunity to be eligible for a full Nanodegree scholarship after 3-months.

  • Will I get my project reviewed in Phase 1 of the scholarship?

    There are no projects in Phase 1 so you will not have any projects reviewed. You will have access to lessons, quizzes, videos and mentors in this phase.

  • How are winners chosen for the full Nanodegree scholarships?

    After the 3-months, full scholarships will be awarded to students based on the progress in Phase 1 and their contributions to the Udacity community. The scholarships will include the following Nanodegree programs: Front-End Web Developer, Mobile Web Specialist, Android Basics Nanodegree and Android Developer.

  • How many hours a week should I expect to spend on my coursework in order to succeed in this program?

    Between instructional content, quizzes, projects, and other course-related activity, we estimate that investing 10 hours/week will enable you to proceed through the program at a successful pace, finishing before your 3-month scholarship ends in Phase 1. You can ultimately work at whatever chosen pace you'd like, as long as you complete the material before your scholarship ends. If you are awarded a full Nanodegree scholarship after 3-months, you will have an additional 6-months to complete the Nanodegree program.

  • Can I choose when to take the course or is there specific time when I need to be online?

    The scholarships will begin on November 6, 2017. You can study according to your own schedule as long as you complete the course within 3 months. You have access to the material via your Udacity classroom, or the mobile apps, 24 hours a day and you are welcome to learn whenever suits you best until the scholarship program ends.

  • Will I definitely get a job as an Developer if I get one of these scholarships?

    These scholarships do not guarantee you a job. But Udacity students often do get jobs after graduating from programs like this. Check out some student stories here.

  • Do these courses make me a Google certified developer?

    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.

  • What if I missed the deadline to apply?

    In order to be fair to all scholarship applicants and recipients we do not extend deadlines. But we will work very hard to create more scholarship opportunities like this one and hope you will be able to take advantage of those. In the meantime, take advantage of some of our free Developer courses.

  • What is Bertelsmann's involvement in this scholarship program?

    Bertelsmann shares Google and Udacity's commitment to closing the digital skills gap and providing learning opportunities that will help people advance their career. As part of this commitment, Bertelsmann is funding additional scholarships in the field of data science, which will become available later this fall. Keep an eye out for more information, and be sure to register at Scholarships at Udacity to receive additional information.
