Data Science - Part Time

4 half scholarships for our Data Science Part Time course
starting in April 2021

About this scholarship 

We believe 2021 is the year for women in Data Science, and we want to make good by this promise. That’s why we’re taking an active role in creating the change that we wish to see by offering 4 half scholarships to future female Data Scientists.

We will be offering 4 half scholarships for our Data Science 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.

These Life-Balance Scholarships have been created to give women who have to manage other life responsibilities the ability to study Data Science with us part time

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 Science 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.

We know you are proud of your problem solving skills. But let us help you to solve this one. Tell us your story about why you’re passionate about technology for a chance to receive one of our scholarships.

The deadline to apply to these scholarships is Sunday, February 21st, 2021.

Thanks for your interest!
