About the Accelerator

The AWS Accelerator Programme 2024 is the 3rd year of an exciting initiative aimed at introducing students to cutting edge Machine/Deep Learning capabilities on the AWS Cloud. (Check out the 2021 Accelerator website here.)

This fully-sponsored programme is supported by the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore, and open to students enrolled in local Secondary Schools and Junior Colleges. Each participant will receive USD100 worth of AWS cloud computing credits and also receive a Certificate of Completion issued by AWS, for the official Cloud Practitioner Essentials course (incorporated into the Accelerator programme).
