SoFlo Coders Can Get $200K in Scholarships


Two of Florida’s most influential companies are teaming up, once again, to bring relief for coding and design students in the form of $200,000 scholarships. Iron hack and Uber are awarding both full and partial scholarships for the second year in a row; an investment on the future coders of America.

“We were overwhelmed with the response to our first scholarship campaign last year,” says the General Manager for Florida Uber, “and we’re delighted to bring back this great opportunity for our driver-partners and riders.”

With tech being a rapidly growing industry, having Uber and Ironhack providing these sought-after grants is vital for some. Not only does it allow the opportunity for young coders to learn their craft, but allows them the opportunity to get in with some of the biggest tech companies South Florida has to offer.

 

To apply for the Uber/Ironhack scholarships follow these steps:

  1. Uber riders and driver-partners in Florida should check their rider or driver app between January 8 and January 19 for details about the scholarship opportunity. To enter, users should enter their information and will receive a link to apply to one of Ironhack’s three courses (riders should make sure they have the latest version of the Uber app installed).
  2. Scholarship applications must be received by 11:59 PM EST on January 21, 2018.
  3. Selected finalists will be contacted for second-round interviews.
  4. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, February 6.

Interested Uber driver-partners and riders can also learn about the scholarships at Ironhack’s upcoming open house on Saturday, January 13 at 11 am. This free event will take place at Ironhack’s campus at 120 S.W. 8th Street in Miami. To attend, RSVP here.
