Did you know that 57% of bachelor’s degrees are earned by women, yet they only account for 18% of the computer science degrees issued? And startups with women leaders are more than two times as likely to be successful?
Thanks to initiatives like the Kode With Klossy summer coding camp, young women across the country are getting inspired to explore programming and future careers in tech.
Today, we’re excited to be part of expanding on this work, by partnering with Kode Woth Klossy to launch a professional scholarship to expand access to computer science education and opportunities for women – especially those who are ready to transform their careers with code.
Through the Career Scholarship, recipients will enroll in a nine-month program through Flatiron School’s Learn.co online campus, a self-paced coding curriculum that serves as a complement or alternative to higher education.
Then, upon completing the program, graduates will have access to Flatiron School’s extensive career resources and network, plus the opportunity to secure paid apprenticeships at some innovative companies like Conde Nast, WeWork, Vice and more!
For women who dream of starting or transitioning to careers in software engineering, the Kode With Klossy Career Scholarship makes taking the first step an exciting and realistic possibility.
