As part of their believe that voice is the future, Amazon is expanding their Alexa Fellowship with a Fund for Investing in Student Scientists and Entrepreneurs.

The initiative is divided in the Graduate Fellowship and the Innovation Fellowship. Universities part of this program include Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, India and Johns Hopkins University.
