Two-hundred students from diverse backgrounds will receive scholarships funded by AT&T and Udacity for an online degree that will help prepare them for careers in the tech industry. Announced today at The Atlantic’s Technologies in Education 2014 forum, the scholarships will cover the costs for students to earn nanodegrees. “Nanodegrees are a new type of credential for students anywhere to have access to affordable training. Earning this credential will soon become a key part of AT&T’s training and talent acquisition model and our hope is that it will be recognized by other employers in a similar fashion,” said Scott S. Smith, Senior Vice President of Human Resources Operations at AT&T.
