How It Works?
The AWS Machine Learning Scholarship program is for all developers interested in expanding their AWS machine learning skills and expertise.
Phase 1 : Scholarship Foundations Course
100% of applicants will gain access to the foundations course on June 28, 2021. Students can complete the foundations content at their own pace before the deadline of October 11, 2021.
The course will help students develop object-oriented programming skills including writing clean and modular code and also introduce key AWS machine learning technologies, namely Amazon AI Services and Amazon AI Devices and apply their skills in the AWS lab environment.
At the completion of the course, learners will receive a certificate for having completed the foundational course.
Finally, learners will receive instructions to take an online assessment quiz that will be used to select the top scorers who will receive a full scholarship for Udacity’s popular Machine Learning Engineer nanodegree.
Phase 2 : Full Scholarship for a Udacity Nanodegree program
425 Scholarship participants who complete all program content and receive top scores from the online assessment quiz from the foundational program will earn a scholarship to the AWS Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree program.
Nanodegree programs typically require several hours of work per week for the duration of the Nanodegree program, from October 25, 2021 through January 25, 2022.
This program will offer world-class curriculum, a groundbreaking classroom experience, industry leading instructors, thorough project reviews and a full suite of career services.
