The goal of this program is to train students from underrepresented and underserved computer science education communities.
“Amazon Future Engineer is a four-part program, from childhood to career, aimed at motivating and educating thousands of students from at least communities each year to give them a try in computing and coding,” explains The FAQ program at the page.
“Globally, we support young high school students with coding lessons and camps, high school students with a full computer science curriculum, and scholarships and internships,” Amazon said in a job posting.
The Amazon Future Engineer initiative is an important part of Amazon’s $ 50 million investment in computing over the next several years.
