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 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.
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 email@example.com 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.
