Education should be a right, not a privilege. While natural talent for coding is spread equally across people of all backgrounds, access to tech education is not. Amplifying underrepresented populations’ access to tech education is not only a belief at Tech Elevator, but a priority. We initiated our Represent Tech Scholarship to advance diversity in tech.
With this scholarship, Tech Elevator has committed over $1M to provide access to underrepresented groups with a quality tech education and a future in the world of tech.
The Represent Tech scholarship opens the door for professional advancement and opportunity for underrepresented groups. Our partners help make this life-changing opportunity possible.
Since the Represent Tech scholarship was created in summer 2020, there has been a substantial increase in both the number of applications to our program and in the number of enrolled students from historically underrepresented groups in tech. The scholarship has led to dramatic changes in the demographics of our student body. And, this is just the beginning.
We can build a more inclusive tech future today. Our Represent Tech Scholarship intends to support new perspectives and help create future tech leaders from all backgrounds.
Tech education provides opportunity and bright futures. Our scholars have built confidence, discovered a passion for programming, and given the tools to make the impact that they were meant to through access to tech education.
Participation in our scholarship program changes not just the lives of our scholars, but the lives of their families and communities as well. Our students develop financial freedom to care for their families and provide them with a good life. They also recognize that they have the power to encourage and help others in their community as well to pursue their passions.
Our partners are a vital part of our equitable process. The Represent Tech Scholarship succeeds because of the passion and dedication of our partners. We’ve committed over $1M to help our scholars earn $190M lifetime earnings, but that’s just a start. We need our partners to help take it to the next level.
Partnering with us is a win-win: together, we lift up talented individuals from all backgrounds. Your team gets first access to hiring vetted and talented candidates who have gone through the Tech Elevator process. Scholarship recipients can walk away with an impactful new career in tech, and you could walk away with a valuable new team member.
With your support, just imagine how many more lives and careers we’ll be able to transform in the years ahead. Fill in your details below & we'll be in touch to get the process started.
