Udacity invites applications for its AWS machine learning scholarship program for enthusiasts who are looking to become machine learning engineers. Similar to other scholarship programs of Udacity, learners will have to complete the foundation course to stand a chance to get the scholarship — AWS Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree program. However, after completion of the foundational course, we will have to take an assessment, which will allow Udacity to evaluate top performers for the AWS machine learning scholarship.
Based on the results of the assessment, a total of 425 learners will be selected for the Nanodegree program, where learners will learn advanced machine learning and gain a certificate on completion.
According to Udacity, all the learners applying for the foundational course would be accepted, thereby giving an opportunity to all the learners to showcase their learning ability to obtain the scholarship.
The foundational course includes topics like object-oriented programming skills, fundamentals of machine learning, and other AWS technologies like AWS DeepRacer, AWS DeepLens, and AWS DeepComposer. Learners will even get a certificate for completing the foundational course. There are other perks for participating and completing first — the first 150 learners to successfully complete the free course will receive AWS DeepLense devices and $35 AWS credits will be offered to the first 2500 applicants.
Both the foundation course and assessment should be completed by learners before October 11, 2021; the foundation course will be available for scholarship participants in the Udacity Classroom on June 28, 2021, and the winners will be announced on October 21, 2021. The second phase will start on October 25, 2021, and will end on January 25, 2022.
