We will be offering 3 scholarships for our Data Science Immersive Bootcamp of 50% off the total tuition fee (3475€).

3 scholarships for our Web Development Part-time Course of 50% off the total tuition fee (3725€).

Winners will have to cover the remaining 50% fee in order to attend the course, which is the same amount as the scholarship.

This scholarship is intended for women with low income and/or other socio-cultural barriers that have the drive and the vision to develop Data or Web Development solutions but lack the funds to get started in these fields

This scholarship is open to anyone who identifies as a woman (including transgender, genderqueer or non-binary individuals). Applicants must be 18 years of age or older at the date of submission.
