Coyotiv Diversity Scholarships: Have a seat at the table!

Applications for the diversity scholarships are now open!

Imagine a world where anyone can access quality education and thrive in a supportive environment. Where bias is no longer an issue and not only everyone has their seat at the table, but also they have the power to flip the table…

On March 21st, 2022 we will be starting our eighth cohort in the School of Software Engineering. As our seventh cohort approaches graduation, 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 underrepresented 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 2020, we created our first full-time, 13-week, intense software engineering training program at Coyotiv School of Software Engineering.

We want to set a new standard for our industry and create a new, more equitable one. At Coyotiv, we know that by opening the doors to people from different backgrounds we can build a more inclusive, prosperous future for all of us. With many graduates now working as full-time engineers, we have seen the impact knowledge can make. We are committed to sustaining this change for many more to come.

This is why we are giving out 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. Recipients 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.
