American for-profit educational organization, Udacity has announced its first 150 Blacks in Technology 2021 Scholarships program.

The organization has collaborated with corporate and government partners to fund 1,000+ Nanodegree scholarships to members of the Black community interested in transitioning to or furthering their careers in tech in 2021.

Udacity is committed to bridging the gap between the number of tech jobs available and the number of Black people working in tech.

To ensure a robust pipeline of trained, talented Black tech professionals, the first cohort will empower individuals to learn in-demand tech skills in Programming for Data Science with Python, Product Management, or Cloud DevOps Engineering.

Scholarship recipients will complete a portfolio of real-world projects that demonstrate mastery of highly sought-after skills. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to engage with Blacks In Technology's network of Black tech professionals and participate in a vibrant Udacity student community.

Applications are opened from now to April 13th, 2021
