Because of these funds, over 270 students from populations underrepresented in tech have been able to pursue high-potential tech careers.
We’re immensely proud of what these students have accomplished through the Diversity Scholarship Fund, but we’re not done yet. As new students prepare to start their life-changing journey in 2018, we want to continue to ensure that financial barriers do not stand between students and their new career.
It’s our goal to raise $100K by the end of 2017, with all tax-deductable donations going towards 2018 Diversity Scholarships for those with financial need.
“Receiving the Diversity Scholarship at Code Fellows has opened doors for me that I believe I wouldn’t have been able to walk through without the support and encouragement of the Code Fellows staff. As a woman now in the field, I plan on encouraging other women who want to pursue a career in technology and remind them how big of a difference we can make.” — Rae Helsel, iOS Developer at hOM
