Announcing the Women Techmakers Udacity Scholarship in partnership with Google

Women Techmakers Udacity Scholarship

From our vantage point in the heart of Silicon Valley, we witness miracles of innovation every day. But as exciting as the tech space can be, it is also an arena that still struggles with very real issues of equality and diversity. We are also an international company, with students, instructors, and partners located all over the world. We are fortunate to be able to engage with people from other cultures and backgrounds on a daily basis, and we see the challenges that exist on the global stage as well.

One issue we are very focused on is increasing the number of women working in tech—we urgently need to have more women building new technologies.

To that end, Udacity is thrilled to launch the Women Techmakers Udacity Scholarship in partnership with Google. Women Techmakers, Google’s global program, provides visibility, community and resources for women in technology. This initiative will help women learn web and mobile development skills through enrollment in our Nanodegree programs. This scholarship is a powerful expression of Udacity and Google’s shared commitment to supporting the learning and careers goals of individuals across the globe, and we look forward to working with Women Techmakers to select candidates ready to take the next step in their careers.

Apply for the Women Techmakers Udacity Scholarship by June 9, 2017!
