The I/Own It scholarship offers free tuition and a paid internship at Optimizely, an experience optimization platform for A/B testing and personalization based in San Francisco. Winners will attend Hack Reactor’s 12-week, in-person program starting in August, work with an Optimizely mentor throughout, and start their internship after graduation.
The second scholarship is a diversity scholarship for MakerSquare Los Angeles. Lucky recipients (who must be residents of southern California) will get free tuition to MakerSquare’s session starting June 29. To apply, first submit an application and get accepted to MakerSquare, and then they will send you a scholarship application.
MakerSquare’s first session in Austin boasted 50% women thanks to a similar scholarship. MakerSquare is part of the “Hack Reactor collective,” a network of partnered schools.
These bootcamp scholarships are a way to encourage more women to learn to code. “We are driving change by making programming education more accessible,” said MakerSquare cofounder Shehzan Devani. One study found that 38% of programming bootcamp graduates are women; right now, Hack Reactor has around 33% women in their remote class.
If you miss these deadlines, check out 16 coding bootcamps with scholarships for women for more opportunities.
