Posted by Blair Williamson  /  August 10, 2021

At Flatiron School, we believe in the importance of bringing diversity and more diverse experiences to the tech industry. Our programs are designed with this in mind — people from any background and work experience can learn tech skills and change careers.  

Our new Essential Workers Scholarship provides opportunities for individuals with the passion, dedication, and will to change things, especially if they’ve experienced roadblocks before. Students who are awarded the scholarship can receive up to $1,500 and start learning with no deposit down.

The scholarship is open to: 

  • Essential workers, as defined by federal criteria for eligibility;

  • Individuals age 18 and older;

  • And who successfully complete Flatiron School’s admissions process.
