The Amazon Future Scholarship Program for Engineers 2022 has been announced for which students are invited to apply
Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship Program is currently in progress for students who wish to obtain a $40,000 scholarship and work as an intern at Amazon. This opportunity is announced to support students who have a significant need for financial aid. “Amazon Future Engineer is a comprehensive childhood-to-professional program that aims to increase access to computer science education for children and youth from underrepresented and disadvantaged communities,” the company says.
A total of 100 students will be selected for the Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship Program. Apart from the $40,000 scholarship, students will be offered a paid summer internship opportunity as programmers at Amazon. This scholarship award can be used for tuition, fees, books and supplies only. Those wishing to apply will have to submit applications before January 25, 2022.
Who Can Apply for the Amazon Future Scholarship Program for Engineers
The scholarship is aimed at students who meet the following eligibility criteria:
- The scholarship program is open to students who plan to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in a computer science-related field of study from an accredited 4-year college or from a 2-year college intending to transfer to a 4-year college.
- Students must have taken computer science classes in high school or a dual college program, or are currently enrolled in one.
- Applicants must have a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or equivalent.
