The program appeared to be successful, but was closed. Why? The story seems to be this: "it seems Udacity doesn’t really need the job guarantee program anymore to attract new Nanodegree students, and that may be one of the reasons why Udacity has decided not to pursue Blitz further." A second reason could be that it cot too much for Udacity to operate, as it had to set up agreements with companies to hire the graduates.
