Go for the CoderGirl Scholarship

Half of the world are female, but only a few of them choose to study and work in tech. This makes half of the population barely represented in an industry that defines our digital future.

However, there's a clear improvement in the quality and usability of products when women are involved in the development process. We created the CoderGirl Scholarship to make tech more accessible to girls and women, and invite them to take part in creating a more diverse future.

Gender stereotypes in tech:
not just wrong, they’re expensive


Too many women still think that coding requires special skills or competencies that they don’t have. This is so not right. It’s been proven that women and men can equally make great developers. What’s more, women are believed to be more empathetic and creative in general, and these traits are a big plus in programmers.

IT shouldn’t be a male-dominated industry. However, only 8% of developers are female on a global level and a mere 17% in the EU. In the meantime, 53% of European companies report difficulties in finding qualified IT people. The widening tech talent gap makes them postpone digitalisation, slow down innovation, and get left behind in the race.

A fundamental change of mindset about the gender problem in tech is not just about decency and common sense. It’s about revenue, bottomline and survival.

It’s time to get real. Come and break new ground with us: study programming for free with our CoderGirl Scholarship, and start a new career in tech for a better, diverse digital future.
