Full Scholarships for Tech Nanodegree Programs

OneTen, the Blacks In Technology Foundation, and Udacity are partnering to offer 2,000 fully funded scholarships to train and empower members of the African American community without a four-year degree and to reshape the tech industry.

Change the Future of Technology

The tech industry offers some of the fastest growing and in-demand employment opportunities today. But these opportunities have been unequal and exclusionary — especially for people without four-year degrees.

OneTen, the Blacks In Technology Foundation, and Udacity are teaming up to change this. The Nanodegree Scholarship Program aims to give members of the African American community without four-year degrees family-sustaining and generational-wealth-building opportunities, while disrupting the status quo.

Apply to the Scholarship Program today to be a part of the change. Gain applicable skills to start a new career in tech and help break open an industry for the championship and advancement of Black talent.

Together, we can build a more equitable future.
