A Nanodegree is a project-based online educational program that prepares you for a job in tech. Nanodegrees combine video lessons, readings, quizzes, and projects all designed to equip you with the skills you need to land the job you want. Nanodegree programs feature cutting-edge curriculum built with industry leaders and are taught by expert instructors.
Expert instructors from the relevant tech industry teach Nanodegree lessons. Nanodegree curricula and lessons are designed with the goal of ensuring you have the specific skillset needed for a job in the relevant field. Udacity curriculum managers start designing Nanodegrees by first asking hiring managers and subject matter experts from leading companies: “what specific skills are needed to have a job in this field?”
You have a wide variety of support as a Nanodegree student. The best way to receive speedy help is to post your question in a dedicated discussion forum. These forums are moderated and monitored by expert mentors who are available to answer questions, offer support, and recommend additional resources. If you require more individual help, you can schedule a 1 on 1 appointment with a mentor. You can also always reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for additional support and problem solving.

That can vary on your level of experience. Between instructional content, quizzes, projects, and other course-related activity, we estimate that investing at least 10 hours/week will enable you to proceed through the program to successfully finish before your 8-month scholarship ends. However, this is just a guideline. We recommend that you follow the pace that best works for you in order to consistently meet the project deadlines and complete the Nanodegree projects before your scholarship ends.
The scholarship program is scheduled to run from June 2017 - February 2018. You can study and work on your projects according to your own weekly schedule. You will have access to the material via your Udacity classroom or the mobile apps, 24 hours a day over the 8-month scholarship period. Though you can choose what hours work best for you to study, we strongly recommend you set aside concrete periods each week to dedicate to working on your Nanodegree.
As a scholarship student, you are expected to submit each project in your Nanodegree for formal review on set dates. This ensures you keep up with the entire class and stays on pace to successfully finish the Nanodegree before the end of the 8-month scholarship.
You must successfully complete each of the Nanodegree’s required projects to graduate. There are no final exams in the traditional sense. Rather, the projects serve as confirmation that you have mastered all of the skills called for in the Nanodegree.
The program is funded 100% by AT&T and Udacity; there will be no out of pocket costs for scholarship recipients to access their Udacity Nanodegree for an eight-month period. No matter if you complete all assignments by the end of the eight-month scholarship period or fail to do so, you will not be charged or asked for your credit card information.
This scholarship does not guarantee you a job. But Udacity students often do get jobs after graduating from programs like this. Check out some student stories here. A note on Intro to Programming Nanodegree: this program will set the foundation for you to access a common body of knowledge that all programmers share and it will broaden your career opportunities. This is not a career-track Nanodegree program but it is a critical step forward toward a future in tech.
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.
