Coding Scholarships

The tech world’s status as a ‘no girls allowed’ clubhouse is on the way out. From web development to data science (and everything in between), women are getting into tech in a big way. But there’s still a long way to go. And if we’re ever going to see gender equality in the digital age, we need more female software engineers — and lots of them.

That’s where Hackbright Academy scholarships come in.

Hackbright Academy’s women-only policy is shaping the tech world, and scholarships help ensure everyone is included in the movement. Companies that are passionate about our mission to promote gender equality and diversity in the field provide these opportunities. 

So don’t let financial concerns stand in the way of your destiny! If you’re interested in taking your rightful place as a queen of tech, you could be eligible for a coding school scholarship. The coding scholarships for women that are available at this time are listed below. Please refer to individual program application deadlines for specific scholarship dates.
