Are There Any Online Coding Scholarships?


QUESTION

I’m seeking for online scholarship courses for coding. Are there any good websites where I can look for scholarships? What about learning for free online?

Answer

Hey Bhandari,

Great question. Unfortunately unlike college scholarships, there are not many scholarships for online coding courses and/or bootcamps. (At least not yet, anyway.)

Moreover, most of the scholarships available are for women and others underrepresented in tech.

A few coding scholarship options:

  1. Coding Bootcamp Scholarships for Women: This article covers all the scholarships available for women at coding bootcamps. Some offer more assistance than others. Note: all of the scholarships on this list are for in-person programs.
  2. Programming Bootcamp Scholarships: The Definitive List: A comprehensive list put together by CourseReport. This includes all kinds of scholarships—not just women-only. It also includes in-person and online bootcamps.
  3. One Month: One Month is a relatively affordable online learning platform that has special scholarships for women. Learn more here about their scholarships.

If there is a particular course/program you want to take, and it’s out of your price range, I suggest:

  1. Googling the name of the course + the word “scholarship”
  2. If no results appear, email the program directly and ask if they offer any kind of financial assistance

You never know until you ask!
