flatiron students working together discussing diversity and inclusion

Access Scholarship

The Access Scholarship opens doors for aspiring innovators who may have experienced barriers to an education.

Access to a future you’ll love

Flatiron School believes in limitless potential. Talent is something that’s distributed evenly — regardless of background or financial situation — but opportunity isn’t. Our Access Scholarship provides opportunities for individuals motivated to reach for them, especially if they’ve experienced roadblocks in the past.

You deserve the chance to tap into your full potential and change your life with the first step to a new career — regardless of your background or financial situation. You deserve an opportunity to shape the future. You deserve access.

Scholarship Details

Start learning with a partial scholarship.

The Access Scholarship is a partial scholarship of up to $2,000 (Scholarship amounts are subject to change). Recipients who are in need of financial assistance (as outlined in the “Other Eligibility” section) may be eligible for an additional partial scholarship. Recipients who show excellence in all aspects of the admissions process may be eligible for the maximum scholarship.


To build a more diverse, inclusive tech community, Access Scholarships will be awarded to students from underrepresented communities. Candidates must identify as a member of one or more of the following groups: 

  • Women 
  • Underrepresented minorities
  • People with disabilities 
  • Veterans or British Armed Forces Service Leaders 
  • LGBTQ+

Other Eligibility

You may qualify for a partial scholarship if you earned less than the annual income shown during at least the last 12 consecutive months for the timezone where you reside:

  • EST – $64K
  • CST – $49K
  • MST – $51K
  • PST – $77K  

To bring fresh perspectives and new backgrounds to the tech community, Access Scholarships will only be awarded to individuals who have no prior experience working in the technical role they’re being trained for.
