Financing
Third Party Financing

We partner with Skills Fund, an innovative financing company that offers financing options for students accepted to our bootcamp.

Scholarship
Scholarships

We offer a $3,000 scholarship for women, members of underrepresented groups, those in the LGBTQ community, or veterans of U.S. military personnel.

We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion within the exciting and growing field of data science. We aim to foster an equal and representative data science community amongst our staff and within our classrooms, filled with individuals of all technical, educational, and personal backgrounds.

Because of this, we offer $3,000 Data Science Bootcamp Scholarships to women, members of underrepresented demographic groups*, members of the LGBTQ community, and/or veterans or members of the U.S. military.

Why?

- Women make up less than one-third of all employees in the tech sector and just 11% of data scientists1 – additionally, they are paid significantly less, on average.2

- Women of color represent less than three percent of those in technology fields.3

- Only four percent of those in software development, application, and systems jobs are African-American and just five percent are Hispanic or Latino.4

- There are 20% fewer LGBT individuals in government STEM-related jobs than should be expected5 and 43% of the STEM workforce is closeted.6

We must reverse these trends and create more avenues for talented individuals from these groups and communities to enter, remain, and thrive in the field of data science.


* Underrepresented demographic groups include African Americans, Mexican-Americans, Native Americans (American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians), Hispanic and Latino Americans, Pacific Islanders, and mainland Puerto Ricans.
