Preference will be given to minority populations underrepresented in STEM, including: African Americans, Hispanics, Latino/Latina, American Indians and Alaska natives.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Amazon Web Services play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Awards are for undergraduate study only. A maximum of 150 applications will be accepted.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
