Located in the heart of the tech world in Silicon Valley, Coding House is a 60 day full immersion bootcamp. One of the few “live-in bootcamps,” Coding House teaches full stack web development with a focus on JavaScript technologies and Rails.

We’re breaking down Coding House’s 100% Scholarship for Female Developers!

 

Women in Tech

90% of software developers are men. One of the biggest reasons is schooling. Women earn just 18% of undergraduate degrees in computer science. Those are harrowing statistics! Coding House is looking to help change that by educating motivated, talented women seeking to learn coding by offering a full scholarship to one woman per cohort.

 

The Scholarship

The scholarship covers the entirety of tuition to Coding House, a $16,800 value.

 

What It Takes

Submit your application to Coding House and make sure to select the option for the full ride scholarship on the Scholarships tab.

Next, make a website about yourself. The website can be created with any technologies, but modern JavaScript frameworks gets bonus points.

Then create a Tumblr post about why you should win the full ride scholarship. Optionally, applicants can also record and post a YouTube video explaining why they should win.

Tweet @codinghouse with a link to the Tumblr post, and email scholarship@codinghouse.co with links to the website and Tumblr post, and any other relevant information you want the judges to know.

 

Deadlines + Judging Criteria

The current contest is for the cohort starting August 16. The deadline to submit for the contest is June 15, 2015 at 1 pm PST

Each part of the application will be judged by a panel of experts on a scale of 1 to 10. The website and Tumblr post are each weighted at 50% of the contest and the optional YouTube video represents an additional 10%.

 

Why We Think It’s Awesome

We love women. We love tech. We LOVE women in tech! This scholarship gives a full ride to a worthy woman so she can attend Coding House’s immersion program. Instead of deciding based on essays, the contest gives applicants a chance to show their technical ability while also providing insight into themselves. We can’t wait to see the great work that’s coming.
