How it Works

This scholarship is open to all applicants interested in building their deep learning skill set. Applicants 18 years of age or older are invited to apply. We’ll review all applications and select qualified applicants to participate in the Scholarship Foundations Course. This is where your learning begins! You’ll spend 2 months building powerful deep learning models with PyTorch. Top students from the initial Foundations Course will be selected for the Deep Learning Nanodegree program.

Foundations Course
