Amazon Announces Academic Redshirt Program At U Of I
(Urbana, IL) — Amazon is looking to give some University of Illinois students time to get up to speed in science and engineering classes. The Champaign News-Gazette yesterday reported that Amazon will invest a million-dollars over the next five years to start an academic redshirt program. The idea is to give students who show promise in science and engineering fields some time to catch up with other students who took advanced courses in high school. The first redshirt class will include 25 students from both rural and urban high schools.
