Area High School Seniors Encouraged to Apply for AWS STEM Scholarships


Amazon Web Services recently announced the opening of the 2022 applications for the AWS InCommunities Scholarship Program, which offers grants to high school seniors in designated districts in Oregon who plan to pursue a STEM-related subject at a higher education institution.

A total of $100,000 in scholarships is open to students enrolling in courses such as electrical and electronic engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence, biochemistry, software engineering, physics, and much more.

Local high school seniors in Umatilla County, Morrow County, and members of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation/Nixyaawii School qualify and are encouraged to apply for the available scholarships through the deadline of March 29.

The AWS InCommunities Program exists to make a positive impact through community based programs, specifically in the regions where AWS builds and operates its global infrastructure. More information about the AWS InCommunities Scholarship Program and the 2022 application process can be found here.
