Change your Career with Accenture

Accenture and Udacity have teamed up to award 600 fully funded tech scholarships to train and empower individuals without a four-year degree with the most sought-after technology skills.

There are no previous requirements needed. You just need to be willing to learn and dedicate 10 hours a week to the program. The Intro to Programming path will help you learn basic coding skills and the Predictive Analytics path will teach you to solve problems with data.

About the Accenture Scholarship Program

Udacity and Accenture have teamed up to welcome applicants into the Accenture Scholarship Program to grow future technology talent that reflects the communities where we live, work and play. Accenture is a global professional services company with leading capabilities in digital, cloud and security. Join us as we empower individuals without a four-year degree to build cutting-edge skills needed for a successful tech career.

The Application & Challenge: All Challenge participants will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of either Programming or Predictive Analytics at no cost. The only requirements are access to a computer, an internet connection, your time and interest in learning.
  1. The Application | Complete the application in less than 5 minutes!
  2. The Challenge & Assessments | The Challenge gives you a taste of the training and takes about 10 hours per week on your own schedule and pace. The earlier you complete the Application, the more time you will have to complete the Challenge! Participants who complete the Challenge will then take a Completion Assessment and a Challenge Assessment.
The Scholarship: Up to 600 individuals who complete the Challenge and Assessment will receive a full scholarship to the Udacity Intro to Programming or Udacity Predictive Analytics programs. The program is a 3-6 month long self-paced, online learning program that builds real technical skills in about 10 hours per week. Graduates of these two programs will be eligible to apply for Accenture’s Apprenticeship Program.


The program is designed with learners’ needs in mind:

  • CONVENIENT: Courses are part-time and online so you can learn when and where it’s convenient for you

  • INCLUSIVE: The scholarship aims to make the future tech workforce more accesible by removing financial barriers to tech skill building
