The #YesWeCode Fund is a scholarship initiative designed to increase diversity in the tech industry by removing financial barriers and increasing access to quality tech education. By unifying the efforts of code schools, government bodies, civic organizations and employers across the country, the Fund aims to award $100 million in code school diversity scholarships.
The #YesWeCode Fund is designed to remove financial barriers for people who are underrepresented in the technology industry, including women and people of color. Students with financial need are encouraged to apply to receive a scholarship to attend a code school and take the first step toward a fulfilling career in technology.
The #YesWeCode Fund partners include nonprofits, workforce development agencies, government bodies, accelerated education coding bootcamps, and employment partners. The partners are committed to creating successful pathways to quality long-term career opportunity through access to skills based technical education and financial literacy training.
