Amazon aims to help high school students soar to greater heights through a new program that will award $10 million in scholarships. The program is designed to equip students from underserved communities with the opportunity to go on to pursue post-secondary education and study computer science. The Amazon Future Engineer program will provide 250 students with $40,000 each while also offering them a paid internship at the e-commerce giant. The childhood-to-career initiative was created to encourage millions of students across several underserved communities with the chance to build life-changing skills through careers in computer science. In the latest investment, Amazon is doubling its previous commitment. S ince the program’s inception in 2019, it has awarded $22 million in scholarships to 550 students across the world.
