About Amazon Future Engineer

Amazon Future Engineer is a computer science and STEM education program that seeks to afford all young people the opportunity to explore their potential.

Mission

We harness Amazon’s scale and innovative spirit to inspire and prepare young people for the careers of the future through computer science. We don’t believe everyone needs to be an engineer, yet we do believe that even a basic exposure to computer science can help young people on their educational and career journey.

Vision

We seek a world where young people can realize their potential as creators, thinkers, and builders.

What makes our program unique?
We lead efforts to improve computer science education on two fronts. First, we invest in the education system to make computer science and STEM careers more accessible to students from underserved communities and those with underrepresented identities in the tech industry. Next, we hold our role as a large tech company to support students with $10 million in annual scholarships — a 4-year, $40,000 scholarship paired with a guaranteed internship after freshman year in college for 250 students each year.
Why are we doing this?
Anyone deserves access to a high paying job, and the education required to get there. Too many young people are denied access by virtue of educational barriers experienced early in life persisting to career. We seek to address these barriers in cases where we can do the most good. We bring Amazon’s unique assets to bear if it will help young people, and we also lift up the nonprofits they, their parents, and their teachers in their community trust. At the end of the day, we seek to help young people thrive in their community—both now and in future generations.
What do we want to change?
Most public elementary and high schools, particularly in underserved and underrepresented communities, do not offer computer science classes. Despite this, trends show that computer science job openings are on the rise and unfortunately there are not enough graduates with the skills to apply for those jobs.

But with a quality computer science education linked to real-world career exposure and job opportunity, we can help young people unleash their potential and their creativity to become the future engineers that will change the world.
