AWS AI & ML Scholarship program aims to upskill students for careers in Machine Learning
The AWS AI & ML Scholarship is a new education and scholarship program aimed at preparing underrepresented and underserved students globally for careers in Machine Learning (ML). The program uses the new AWS DeepRacer Student League to teach students foundational ML concepts by giving them hands-on experience training in machine learning models for autonomous race cars while providing educational content centered on ML fundamentals and mentorship from Amazon and Intel experts.
Delivered in collaboration with Intel and supported by the talent transformation platform Udacity, the program allows students from around the world to access dozens of hours of free training modules and tutorials on the basics of ML and its real-world applications.
About 2,000 qualifying students will win a scholarship for the AI Programming with Python Udacity Nanodegree program, designed to give scholarship recipients the programming tools and techniques fundamental to ML. Students will also receive tailored mentoring and career guidance through monthly events with top industry experts in the field. The top 500 students will be awarded a second more advanced scholarship, where they will receive a full year of one-on-one mentorship from tenured Amazon and Intel technology experts for career insights and advice.
