Why Codeup wants more females in tech
Codeup knows the value women bring to jobs in programming and tech. Currently, women comprise just 23% of software developers in the United States. We’re on a mission to change that statistic.
Why consider a career in software development? Here’s a handful of reasons: employers actively seek to hire female developers, diverse programming teams perform better than non-diverse teams, and jobs in programming offer high pay and more flexible schedules than in other industries. What’s more, coding gives you the amazing ability to create an app or website that actually makes a difference.
We offer two women scholarships per Full-Stack program at $5,000 off the full program tuition. The first step in applying for a scholarship is to start your general Codeup application using the link below. We will accept applications to the Women’s Scholarships until 2 weeks from a class start date, in order to give everyone a chance to apply. 2 weeks from Welcome Day, we will review all applications and award our recipients!
