Amazon is known for its long-term thinking style and we know that coding is the language of the future. Additionally, STEM education and computer science are ingrained into the work many Amazonians rely on day in and day out.
Amazon Future Engineer is Amazon's signature program when it comes to computer science education. Amazon Future Engineer is a long-term approach to making sure more students – specifically 10 million students from underrepresented, underprivileged, and underserved communities each year – have access to computer science education so that someday they might choose to pursue a career in this exciting and rewarding field. Amazon Future Engineer is about access for all. It is a large part of Amazon’s $50 million commitment to investing in computer science and STEM education.
Here’s how it works
Amazon Future Engineer provides ~10 million students each year with after-school computer science workshops, coding camps hosted at schools and various Amazon locations, and online computer science courses.
Amazon Future Engineer provides 2,000 low-income schools across the country (totaling about 100,000 students) with Intro to Computer Science and AP Computer Science classes through our partner, curriculum provider, Edhesive. Amazon’s funding provides preparatory lessons, tutorials, and professional development for teachers, fully sequenced and paced digital curriculum for students, and live online support every day of the week.
Amazon Future Engineer provides 100 students from underrepresented and underprivileged communities studying computer science in college with $10,000/year scholarships.
Amazon Future Engineer offers the 100 scholarship recipients a guaranteed, paid Amazon summer internship after their first year of college. Students, teachers, school administrators, and parents can apply at www.amazonfutureengineer.com.
