Past Scholarships

The Houston Community Boost Scholarship

In partnership with Facebook and the Houston Area Urban League, Flatiron School offered The Houston Community Boost Scholarship to our inaugural Houston Sofware Engineering Immersive. Twenty-five Houston-based students were enrolled — for free — in our course and given the opportunity to jumpstart their careers as programmers. It was our first in many steps to make education accessible and valuable to aspiring Houston coders.

The Facebook + Flatiron Breakthrough Scholarship

Facebook and Flatiron School were happy to announce another partnership in our effort to make education accessible to everyone. The Facebook + Flatiron Breakthrough Scholarship offered twenty Flatiron School students — all from underrepresented groups in the tech industry — a full scholarship to one of our career-change courses: our Online Software Engineering Immersive or our In-Person Software Engineering Immersive in NYC or Washington D.C. On the coattails of our Community Boost Scholarship program in Houston, we were happy to continue to work together on our long-term vision to boost tech diversity.

The Operation Code Scholarship

We love our troops, and the Operation Code Scholarship for our Online Software Engineering Immersive was just one way for us to give back to those who protect us. It focused on educational opportunity for members of our military and their families: veterans and their spouses were eligible.
