Enrollment is now open for 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.
In the first phase of the challenge, participants will learn the fundamentals of digital marketing, business analytics or front-end development through a self-paced foundational course, sponsored by Udacity. Once the course has been completed, participants can be certified after completing an assessment that tests their knowledge in their corresponding track.
Participants then qualify for a Udacity Nanodegree Program scholarship by taking a final assessment to test their knowledge. SCAPE has partnered with the Center On Rural Innovation and Udacity to make Udacity Nanodegree Program scholarships available. CORI and Udacity will sponsor more than 3,000 seats for the foundational courses and 300 scholarships in the corresponding Nanodegree Programs. Scholarships, each valued between $1,200 and $1,600, will be distributed across CORI’s entire RIN network.
