Flatiron School and Meteor offer 15 young women full scholarships

Flatiron School / 5 November 2015

Flatiron School and Meteor believe that programming and computer science education should be accessible to everyone. That’s why we’re pleased to announce a partnership to offer 15 full scholarships to attend Flatiron Pre-College Academy in spring 2016!

The Meteor Web Development Scholarship will cover full tuition for accepted New York City residents, valued at $1,500/person. By the end of Intro to Web Development and Design, students will complete a visually stunning website on a topic they care about. They’ll achieve this through learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) design.

This scholarship is designed with young women from underrepresented communities in mind. Strengthening diversity in tech is the key to a more innovative future, and much like Kode with Karlie and Code for Good scholarships in the past, we are thrilled to see what these students will dream up next with the power of programming.
