Join us in
our mission. 

We're looking for partners in support of Represent Tech, a merit-based scholarship for underrepresented groups that has already changed 120+ lives. 

We are committed to the communities we serve

Be a part of the mission. Create more access to opportunity.

Amplifying underrepresented populations’ access to tech education is not only a belief at Tech Elevator, but a priority. While natural talent for coding is spread evenly across people of all backgrounds, access to tech education is not. Tech Elevator has committed over $1M to establish the scholarship program and provide access to underrepresented groups with a quality tech education and a future in the world of tech. 

Join us on this mission. Contribute to the scholarship fund to open doors for diverse future developers and technology leaders. Ensure that the technology of the future is built by and for all of us. 

Tech Elevator and its partners have awarded 120+ scholarships equaling more than $1M.

The Represent Tech scholarship opens the door for professional advancement and opportunity for underrepresented groups. When you partner with Tech Elevator in support of Represent Tech, you are supporting meaningful access to a program with verified, industry-leading outcomes. 

WTIA Workforce Institute is a 501(c)(3) IRS qualified non-profit organization serving as the fiscal sponsor for the Represent Tech project. Contributions made to WTIA WI in service of the Represent Tech project are tax deductible and will be restricted to serve the stated mission, supporting Represent Tech's scholarship program.

Our goal is to increase tech education access for all.

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.

Shape a diverse future for tech.

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.

Increase technology education access.

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.

Change lives.

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.

Tech Elevator invests in a brighter, more diverse tech future.

Our partners empower bright futures in tech.

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.

Your team gets first access to hiring vetted and talented candidates who have gone through the Tech Elevator process.

"The financial support I received from Tech Elevator via the Represent Tech Scholarship made it so much easier for me to launch my new career. Importantly, I am now able to add my background, experience, talents, and voice to the “tech table”, and serve as a role model for immigrants who are pursuing the American dream, for girls, women, and people of color who are considering a career in STEM, and for anyone who is considering tech as their second-act career."
