Break the Barriers!

The Diversity Scholarships

Applications for the diversity scholarships are now open!

We are on the brink of starting our second cohort in the School of Software Engineering, on October 5. As our first cohort unfolds, our students are transformed—they begin to become more confident and skillful. Their enthusiasm proved we made a right decision by being more accessible to people from communities that are historically underrepresented in tech.

The core elements of the course originated in Women Techmakers Berlin as an initiative to support more women* and people of diverse backgrounds in getting into tech. Armağan has been teaching the JavaScript Crash Course in the community over the last three years. Thank you, Women Techmakers community, for your enthusiasm, your insights and for carrying the torch!

With many graduates now working as engineers full-time, we have seen the impact knowledge can make. We are committed to continuing this change for many more to come. As an organization, as its people, we believe that diverse teams have the biggest success and are the happiest.

This is why we are giving out more diversity scholarships for the next cohort.

What do the diversity scholarships entail?

The diversity scholarships, once assigned, will cover the full course fee over the 9 weeks, for two recipients, and half of the course fee for four recipients. Winners will enjoy the same services and support as paying students.

As the course is virtual, there will be no lodging/housing or food stipend.

Who can apply?

You can apply for the diversity scholarships if you identify as part of a marginalized group, e.g. women*, members of the LGBTQIA+ communities, people with non-standard economic, migratory or social status, and so forth.

This list is by no means exhaustive, and we will consider every application on its own merit.

How to apply?

To apply,

  1. indicate your interest in the application form

  2. book a video call via Calendly

  3. and let us know why would you like to receive a diversity scholarship.

We are looking forward to receiving your applications. And if you know someone who could be a great fit, don’t hesitate to recommend us!
