SCAPE has announced its involvement in The Future is Digital Challenge, an initiative focused on upskilling rural Americans interested in learning new digital skills to help them participate in the nation’s growing tech economy.
SCAPE is partnering with the Center On Rural Innovation and Udacity, to make Udacity Nanodegree Program scholarships available for residents living in one of CORI’s Rural Innovation Network areas.
Participants will learn the fundamentals of either digital marketing, business analytics or front-end development through a self-paced foundational course. Once the course has been completed, participants can be certified after completing an assessment that tests their knowledge in their corresponding track.
Participants will then qualify for a Udacity Nanodegree Program scholarship in one of the aforementioned programs by taking a final assessment to test their knowledge. CORI and Udacity will sponsor 3,000-plus seats for the foundational courses and 300 scholarships in the corresponding Nanodegree Programs. Scholarships, valued between $1200 and $1600, will be distributed across CORI’s entire RIN network.
