Google and Bertelsmann Fund 75,000 New Udacity Scholarships in Europe

To bridge the digital skills gap, Google, Bertelsmann and Udacity are opening 60,000 full scholarships. The scholarships will be available for residents of Europe, Russia, Egypt, Israel and Turkey. Bertelsmann will also fund an additional 15,000 Udacity scholarships in the field of Data Science.

The programme will cover both Android, Web and Data Science courses, and includes Israel, Turkey, Egypt and Russia in addition to EU and EFTA countries

In response to such high demand and the success of the previous year’s programme, Google has increased the number of Udacity scholarships available to 60,000, extended eligibility to Egypt, Israel, Russia and Turkey, and expanded the programme to include both Android and Web Development training. Similarly, Bertelsmann will fund 15,000 Udacity scholarships in the field of Data Science. This is the next step in a partnership which aims to prepare new European talent for the digital future.

Of the 60,000 Udacity scholarships funded by Google, 40,000 are reserved for applicants with no programming experience, the remaining 20,000 are reserved for people with 1-3 years of programming. These challenge scholarships provide three months of access to one of four Udacity courses in Web and Android Development. The top 6,000 students in the programme earn an additional 6-month scholarship to one of four Nanodegree Programmes in the respective fields. Applications close on October 15, and scholarships will be awarded by Udacity on October 30. Applications are open at  .
