The Diversity Scholarships

Applications for the diversity scholarships are now open!

We are on the brink of starting our sixth cohort in the School of Software Engineering, on August 2. As our fifth cohort unfolds, our students have been transformed—they begin to become more confident and skillful. Their enthusiasm proved that we made the right decision by being more accessible to people from communities that are historically under-represented in tech.

We ran a more light-weight version of the course with Women Techmakers Berlin for 3 years as an initiative to support more women* and people with diverse backgrounds in getting into the field and help them build fulfilling tech careers. And in April 2021, we created our first full-time, 13-week, intense software engineering training program at Coyotiv School of Software Engineering.

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 know 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 13 weeks, for TWO 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*, LGBTQIA+ people, women* of color, women* 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.
