About the AWS AI & ML Scholarship Program

If you’re a high school or college student, over the age of 16, and interested in a career in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), this scholarship program is for you.

The Amazon Web Services Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning Scholarship program aims to help students who are underrepresented and underserved in tech learn foundational machine learning concepts as they prepare for a career in one of today’s hottest and fastest-growing fields.

Today's challenge

Machine learning is set to revolutionize various industries, but there's a shortage of trained developers, particularly from underrepresented backgrounds in tech. The World Economic Forum predicts 97 million new tech jobs by 2025, yet women, LGBTQ+ individuals, people with disabilities, and people of color remain significantly underrepresented in science and tech roles. For instance, only around 26% of workers in data and AI roles are female, according to The Future of Gender Parity report by the World Economic Forum.

How does it work?

  1. Step 1

    Enroll in AWS DeepRacer Student

    Students will opt into the scholarship program through AWS DeepRacer Student where they will need to complete two application prerequisites as they learn the fundamental concepts of ML. Upon successful completion of the prerequisites, students will be given a unique code to access the Udacity application to then apply.

  2. Step 2

    Free AWS Generative AI Course

    This free course offers an in-depth exploration of generative AI, emphasizing foundational concepts and real world applications.

    You'll gain practical knowledge of machine learning and generative AI, while exploring responsible and inclusive AI applications within society.

    The course will be available for free exclusively to learners who complete the Udacity application worth $250.

  3. Step 3

    Scholarship recipients announced

    2,000 students will receive scholarships for the 4-month AI Programming with Python Nanodegree program. Attend virtual mentoring events with industry pros. Plus, learn foundational skills in a collaborative virtual environment with mentorship from Udacity and Amazon advisors.

  4. Step 4

    Additional Nanodegree program

    All graduates will be invited to take an assessment. The 500 students with the highest scores on the assessment will earn a second Udacity Nanodegree program scholarship to help further prepare them for a career in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
