Bertelsmann and Udacity are collaborating to provide scholarships for participants to earn critical skills to launch a successful career in data science programming, cybersecurity, or front-end web development.

The Tech & Data Scholarship Initiative will see the group award more than 50,000 scholarships to interested parties from across the world who want to advance their knowledge of emerging technologies in the coming years.

About the Program

Some of the fastest-growing and most in-demand job opportunities available today are in the technology sector. Inequality and exclusion, however, have plagued these chances, particularly for those who reside in specific global communities and locations.

To effect change, Bertelsmann and Udacity are working together. This scholarship initiative seeks to provide students with the chance to learn valuable digital skills anywhere in the world, regardless of their cultural background or socioeconomic standing.
