The recipients, including incoming Media Lab master’s students Samantha Gutiérrez Arango and Raechel Walker, will receive fully funded Fellowships in robotics, engineering, computer science, and related fields that will cover tuition, living expenses, and other costs.
Fellowship recipients will also have the opportunity to participate in Amazon Robotics’ internship program, and engage in networking and mentorship opportunities through a partnership with Black in Robotics (BiR). Additionally, they will be encouraged to reach out to their peers in the Day One program, regardless of where they go to school, to find opportunities to share experiences, consult with one another, and collaborate on projects.
While the first year’s cohort comprises six students, there are plans to expand the program by an additional six fellows next year.
