At Hackbright, we feel strongly that finances shouldn’t inhibit someone from learning how to code. We do everything in our power to provide scholarships and partner with companies to provide a financial plan to support you as you go through our full-time Software Engineering Fellowship program. Since our students become software engineers after graduation, we know that the investment now is small compared to the value added to their career.
That’s why we are always happy to partner with other companies that share our values, and the latest company to show their support is L’Oreal, which is now an official Hackbright Academy partner. The L’Oreal USA Women in Digital (WID), a program that recruits, supports and promotes female entrepreneurs in technology, will be providing a full-time scholarship for a student in our upcoming Winter Fellowship which begins this January. Supported by an advisory board of female leaders in technology that includes Arianna Huffington, Chair, President and Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, Joanne Bradford, Head of Partnerships at Pinterest, Alexia Tsotsis, Co-editor of TechCrunch, and Padmasree Warrior, Chief Technology and Strategy Officer of Cisco Systems, it’s no surprise that this initiative is serious about seeing more women succeed as software engineers.
Huge thanks to L’Oreal for supporting Hackbrighters dedicated to learning to code! Be sure to apply now for the Winter session of the Hackbright Academy engineering fellowship — deadline to apply is November 14th. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis so the sooner you apply, the better your chances are for being admitted. All admitted engineering fellows qualify for the L’Oreal scholarship and the winner of the scholarship will be selected by L’Oreal USA Women in Digital (WID).
