UConn Engineering Joins 30 Universities in Offering Boot Camp Scholarships for Underrepresented Groups
By: Eli Freund, Editorial Communications Manager, UConn School of Engineering
University of Connecticut School of Engineering, in partnership with 30 nonprofit universities across the country and our partner 2U, is expanding access to our boot camp courses in Coding through a $3 million Boot Camp Scholarship Fund.
Underrepresented people of color and women who have experienced recent job loss or economic hardship are eligible to apply for $2,500 towards the cost of a course. Our boot camp courses have advanced the careers of diverse learners in highly relevant technology fields, and we’re excited to be a part of an effort to expand pathways to work for those who have been affected most.
More than 40 million Americans have filed for unemployment as a result of the pandemic, and the economic devastation has disproportionately affected people of color and women. With unprecedented interest in this space and a growing need to fill technology-focused jobs, these scholarship opportunities will provide important pathways to secure employment.
