The decision to offer scholarships for women comes at a difficult time for the world. The Covid-19 pandemic has cost the jobs of countless individuals, and we’d like to do our part to help counter that trend.

We want to give people the opportunity to repurpose their skills and reimagine their careers, and to be able to do that no matter their financial background. Our Part-Time Full-Stack Web & App Development is designed precisely for those whose personal or professional circumstances put limits on the time they can invest in themselves.

As importantly, we aim to promote gender diversity in an industry which unfortunately still remains very much male-dominated.

We believe that marginalizing half of our workforce hurts the workforce in its entirety and hurts all of us. We want to do what we can to change that and to give women in tech opportunities, both in our courses and in our own internal mixed team.
