The new course maps aim to meet the increasing demand for skilled automation professionals in India and create equitable and accessible pathways for individuals to take up emerging jobs, the company said.

To ensure further democratisation of digital upskilling opportunities, the company will provide 100 scholarships every year over the next three years for economically disadvantaged individuals to pursue UiPath certifications.

Both internships and full-time roles will be available on this platform, enabling anyone with UiPath certifications to gain access to entry-level jobs within the UiPath ecosystem.
