Amazon Recruitment Bursary 2024-2025

Amazon Recruitment Bursary 2024-2025:

In 2018, the Amazon Development Center introduced the Amazon Recruitment Bursary program to support individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Selected applicants receive funding from Amazon, covering various aspects of their education, including accommodation, academic costs, tuition fees, and more. Additionally, successful bursary recipients have the opportunity to participate in paid formal internships at Amazon.

During the internship, applicants are assessed for full-time permanent Software Development Engineer (SDE) roles. SDE interns work on real projects and have the chance to demonstrate their skills and value to the company. It also provides an opportunity to network and grow within Amazon.

If extended a full-time SDE role, candidates will work on global-scale projects, design and develop crucial products for customers, and play a significant role in shaping technology solutions for millions of users worldwide.
