90% of software developers are men. A general hypothesis for this huge gender imbalance is schooling – Women earn just 18% of undergraduate degrees awarded for computer science. The largest employers in Silicon Valley, including Apple, Google, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Yahoo, are comprised of 70% males.
Because of this, Coding House is offering a 100% scholarship to our full immersion live-in coding bootcamp in order to #ChangeTheRatio
We are offering this scholarship to one female developer per cohort. In order to find the best candidate, we are holding a contest (see rules below). The current contest is for our September cohort, which begins on September 12th, 2016. The deadline to enter is September 2nd, 2016 at 1pm PST.
Winners will be announced on September 5th, 2016 at 1pm PST.
