Let’s dive into everything you need to know about the Rise & Thrive Scholarship for Career Pivots, and how you may be eligible to apply! 👇

What is the Rise & Thrive Scholarship for Career Pivots? 🤔

The Rise & Thrive Scholarship for Career Pivots allows us to help multiple women make the career pivot they need during the current economic and professional challenges we’re all facing. 

We’re offering scholarships for our bootcamps to 20 people – with a grant of €950 to cover a portion of the bootcamp price. Our bootcamps provide comprehensive formal training in 3 of the most in-demand areas in tech, ensuring that you remain relevant and competitive for the job market. 

The scholarship will be available for the next edition of bootcamps: 

✍️UX/UI Design Bootcamp – January 29th, 2024

📊Data Analytics Bootcamp – February 13th, 2024

The remaining payment (€2000 for UX/UI Design and Product Management, €2500 for Data Analytics) can then be paid at once or, if you still need help affording the remaining tuition fee for the bootcamp, you can apply and explain your financial situation more in-depth in the application form. We will get in touch with you to evaluate further flexible financing opportunities.

Alternatively, we recommend looking into how your employer could fund the rest of the tuition fee – you can find out more about how to do this here
