Scholarships

Change the Ratio ONE LIFE AT A TIME

Donating scholarship dollars enables an aspiring student to cover costs that may prevent them from attending Hackbright. Scholarship funds go directly to the student and can be awarded in your company or organization’s name, based on socio-economic factors or technical merit.

SPONSOR A COHORT

MAKE A BIG SPLASH in THE DIVERSITY & INCLUSION WATERS

Sponsoring a cohort (fifteen or more students) is a great way to create a group of diverse engineers—not to mention future employees. You can change the world, change your org, and pay per-head talent fees that are often less than traditional headhunting or recruiting services.

HIRE OUR GRADS

Solve Staffing Problems & Improve Diversity

The staff in our student outcomes office knows the recruiting world because many of them were former recruiters themselves. For large-scale staffing solutions, we recommend sponsoring a cohort, but if you’re just looking for a modest, steady stream of new talent, this is the option for you. Let us send some candidates your way.

BECOME A MENTOR

GUIDE THE NEXT GENERATION OF DIVERSE SOFTWARE ENGINEERS

Hackbright doesn’t just teach people the technical skills of software engineering. We also prepare people for a whole new life. Our incredible students are often making radical changes and sometimes entering worlds where they feel like outsiders. It’s important that they have guides—people who know the ins and outs of software engineering and are passionate about equality and inclusion.

“In the years I’ve been involved with Hackbright Academy as a mentor, I’ve seen Hackbright pave the path for hundreds of women to launch their careers in technology. Hackbright’s mission is one that Reddit stands behind and has long supported through mentorship, which is why it’s a natural next step for us to now expand our collaboration with Hackbright. With the Code Reddit scholarship fund, we hope to help Hackbright empower even more women looking to begin new careers in tech.”

GET INVOLVED!

Solve Staffing Problems & Improve Diversity

There are many ways to help promote greater diversity, equality, and inclusion in the tech world. We are constantly on the hunt for more companies to attend our hiring events, demo nights, whiteboarding sessions, and other events. Or perhaps you had something else in mind for how we could partnership. That’s great! We’d love to add your organization as an ally and have worked out custom arrangements with companies that are also trying to change the ratio.

Event Partners

“The PagerDuty team was so impressed with the Hackbright women and their demos. We make diversity hiring a priority, and demo night is unparalleled in its ability to showcase extremely talented women engineers to the hiring managers at top tech companies. We look forward to partnering with Hackbright in diversifying the technology landscape.”
