Coding is an in-demand skill. It also has a high learning curve and requires a great deal of training and patience to become proficient. That often means people can't afford the initial investment of money and time to learn how to do it.
If that sounds like you, consider applying to Grand Circus
's "Develop the Mitten" coding scholarship, designed for Michigan residents interested in becoming web developers. "The scholarship is open to Michigan residents and covers the full cost of a 10-week, full-time coding bootcamp," according to a Grand Circus press release. "Two applicants will be awarded; one to attend the bootcamp at the Grand Rapids campus and one to attend at the Detroit campus."
The bootcamp takes students through a course that culminates in a "demo day," where students "present a fully functional web application to an audience of potential employers, members of the Michigan tech community, as well as friends and family."
Each scholarship is valued at $8,500.
Apply for the "Develop the MItten" scholarship here. Applications are due May 3 by 12 p.m. and winners will be announced on May 15. The winning candidates will begin coding bootcamp on June 26.
