The Diversity Scholarship Fund

We believe that immersive, fast-paced education is the key to changing individual lives and the tech industry as a whole. With our Diversity Scholarship Fund, we hope to remove barriers and provide opportunities for women, underrepresented populations, and veterans to be successful in the tech industry.

Improving the diversity of the tech industry creates a lasting impact for both employees and the companies they join. For individuals, tech jobs provide a path to high-paying, rewarding careers. For companies, more diversity in tech means an expanded talent pool, improved team culture, and better products.

Who Can Apply

Scholarships from the Diversity Scholarship Fund are need-based, covering up to 70 percent of tuition for recipients. Women, U.S. military veterans, and populations underrepresented in technology (African American, Hispanic, and Native American, including Alaskan and Hawaiian) are eligible to apply for scholarships from this fund. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need and the applicant's ability to meet requirements of both the course and scholarship application.

How to Apply

Once you've started your application for a Code Fellows course, you're ready to apply for a Diversity Scholarship. Let your Admissions Advisor know that you’d like to apply for a scholarship so they can send you a link to the application, which involves of a series of short essay questions (due three weeks before the start of the course).

Our admissions team will reach out to you two weeks before the start of a course to let you know if you received a scholarship. You can apply for a scholarship for every course, even if you've gotten one in the past.
