Represent Tech Scholarship

We believe that the natural aptitude for learning to code is distributed evenly throughout the population, but access to opportunity is not.

We’re proud to offer scholarships to historically underrepresented groups creating greater accessibility to careers in technology.

“Tech Elevator was very difficult but it showed me what I could do. I didn’t think I was capable of learning so much and doing so much in such a short time. It was character building. You have to learn on the fly. You have to get used to being comfortable in uncomfortable situations and being confident that you will learn quickly.”

About the Represent Tech Scholarship

We strive for our student body to reflect the makeup of the communities we serve. That means we’re committed to diversity within our classrooms and to helping our hiring partners foster an inclusive technology workforce. 

To that end, we’re proud to offer scholarships to historically underrepresented groups creating greater accessibility to careers in technology. In order to be eligible, a candidate must be accepted and enrolled in an upcoming cohort, be job seeking, and eligible to work in the United States.

For the purpose of the scholarship, Tech Elevator currently defines underrepresented personas as anyone who self-identifies with any of the following qualifiers: 

  • Racial or Ethnic Identities: Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, or Native American/American Indian
  • Gender Identification: Female, Transgender, Non-Binary

Potential students often want to know more.

  • What types of lenders do you work with?

    We’re proud to work with lenders who offer financing options for both tuition and cost of living. Check out details about our partners like Sallie Mae, Ascent and HFLA on this page.

  • When should I apply for a loan and how long will it take to be approved?

    While it is recommended you research potential financing options after you apply to Tech Elevator, students should not apply for a loan until they have been accepted and enrolled in a Tech Elevator cohort.

    Our two most popular loan providers are Sallie Mae and Ascent. Applications for loans from Sallie Mae and Ascent can be completed and approved within 30 minutes if you do not use a cosigner. If you apply for a loan with a cosigner, it may extend the approval process by a few weeks. Please touch base with the loan provider on estimated times for approval with a cosigner as it may vary.

    The application for Sallie Mae opens 300 days prior to the start of the cohort, while the application for Ascent opens 90 days before the cohort starts. Please do not apply until you have been accepted into the program.

  • When is tuition due?

    • $125 to hold your spot in class (once accepted)

    • $7,975 is due at the time of equipment release

    • $7,975 due on day 1 of week 8 of the bootcamp

  • How will my loan be disbursed?

    Sallie Mae: For students who receive loans from Sallie Mae, half of their tuition will be paid directly to Tech Elevator 10 days after the cohort begins and the other half will be paid the Wednesday of week 8. If you received additional funds for cost of living, those funds are included in the payments made to Tech Elevator. Upon receiving each of the payments, Tech Elevator will send you a check for your cost of living funds either in person at your campus or via mail. Each of the two cost of living disbursements will be 50% of the total amount.

    Ascent: Total tuition for Ascent is paid 10 days after the cohort begins. If you received cost of living funds, Ascent will send those to you directly.

  • What’s the best way I can get in touch with my loan provider?

    Sallie Mae: 800-4-SALLIE or online chat via their website or app.

    Ascent: To contact Ascent directly, email [email protected]. To talk with your loan servicer, click here.
