In 2020, we gave scholarships to 15 women to do a Udacity Nanodegree, and 10 women to complete a course on Educative. Within the given time, 12 women were able to complete their Udacity Nanodegrees and 6 women were able to complete their Educative courses.
Product Manager Nanodegree
“This scholarship came just at the right time! A few weeks before Ire’s Udacity scholarship was announced, I discovered Udacity had begun the Product Manager Nanodegree course. Product management was a field I was trying to get better at therefore, I was constantly on the lookout for resources or materials that could help me grow. I applied for the scholarship with high hopes that I would get it and so, you can imagine my excitement when I got the congratulatory email. The Nanodegree has equipped me with the skills I need to excel as a product manager. It has been an amazing three months of learning through a course progression with varying skill sets to be gotten from each one. I would not be able to talk about my year without including how much I have gotten from this course. I remain grateful for the opportunity and cannot wait to share more stories of my journey with you..”
Full Stack Developer Nanodegree
“For the 4 months I took the Full-Stack Development Nanodegree, I learnt so much and was exposed to so many concepts. My goal was to fill up the gaps in my knowledge, learning the things I didn’t know while also solidifying the things I did know. The Nanodegree ended up being much more than a platform to learn the required technical skills. It taught everything that was needed to get from learning the skills, to putting myself out there - in a position where my skills would be seen. I’m definitely much more confident in my skills and I can’t wait for the amazing things that come next.”
Frontend Developer Nanodegree
"Getting the IA scholarship to take the Front-End Web Developer Nanodegree for 4 months during the pandemic helped me have a structured direction during this period. I was able to have great understanding of some concepts which I didn't have idea of prior to this and worked on several projects. I am really grateful to Ire for this opportunity."
Cloud Developer Nanodegree
"The Cloud Developer Nanodegree was definitely enlightening. It offered clarity on a lot of cloud-related topics I had been struggling with. My favourite part was the Serverless Computing module. After completing the course, as a bonus, I also gained a deeper understanding of React since most of the projects were built with it. I now feel more confident in my skills."
Android Developer Nanodegree
"Completing the Android Developer Nanodegree program in one month has increased my confidence a lot and my skill as well. It helped me believe in myself and be able to apply to jobs without the fear of rejection. I got promoted at my job, connected with amazing people and also became a co-founder to an already scaling application. The experience was worthwhile and I will always be grateful for the opportunity"
AI for Trading Nanodegree
"Receiving the IA scholarship and dedicating 6 long, gruelling months of completing the projects and coursework that came with the Artificial Intelligence for Trading Nanodegree has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me. I had recently worked with a team of software developers to build a robo-advisory application when I heard of the IA scholarship. My initial intent was to learn more about Quantitative Finance but nothing prepared me for the excellent project-based teaching methods at Udacity, the impressive course content and efficacious project reviews. Going forward, I have launched a project to apply my learnings on an identified problem in the Nigerian financial market. The project, still at its foetal stages, is an ambitious one. I am really googly-eyed with anticipation about the future."
