How it Works

To apply for a scholarship, you need to be at least 18 years old and live in the US. You'll begin by choosing your learning path, either Web Developer or Android Developer. From there, once you're accepted, we'll place you in one of two tracks, depending on your existing skills and experience, either Beginner or Intermediate. After that, the learning begins! Finally, top students from each track will earn full scholarships to one of our Android or Web Development Nanodegree programs. This scholarship is part of the Grow with Google initiative.

  • When were applications due?

    Applications had to be completed and submitted by December 31.

  • What if I missed the deadline to apply?

    We are unable to extend the application deadline past December 31. We are no longer able to accept applications for this scholarship program.

  • Who is eligible for these scholarships?

    To receive one of these scholarships, you must be a current resident of the United States and be at least 18 years of age when you submit your application.

  • 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: 50,000 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 or Developing Android Apps. Scholarship recipients participating in this initial phase of the program will receive support from expert Udacity mentors and community managers while joining a robust student community.

    Phase 2: 5,000 Full Nanodegree Scholarships

    The top 5,000 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.

  • When will results be announced? When does class start?

    Applications close on December 31.

    Scholarship recipients will be announced on January 10.

    Class will start on January 10.

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

    Udacity's single courses consist of lessons, videos, and quizzes. But they do not provide expert staff support available to answer technical questions, review student projects, and provide guidance and help. Scholarship students in Phase 1 of this program will receive technical guidance from expert mentors and will participate in an actively managed scholarship student community where they can engage with and receive support from their fellow classmates.

  • How will the full Nanodegree scholarships be earned?

    After the initial 3-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.

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

    Between instructional content, quizzes, 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. If you are awarded a follow-up Nanodegree scholarship after the initial 3-months Phase 1, you will have an additional 6-months to complete the Nanodegree program.

  • Are there specific class hours when I need to be online or can I go through the lessons and study whenever I want?

    After class starts on January 10 you can study on your own schedule so long as you complete the course within 3 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 3-month long Phase 1.

  • 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 these. Check out some student stories.

  • 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 here.
