They say education is an investment. Lambda School turns that around by investing in you, training you to become a web developer or a data scientist, with no tuition until you’re hired.
As the job market in software engineering, data, and computer science continues to grow quickly, Lambda School, adding to our list of tech scholarships for future professionals, makes it possible to launch your career in these sought-after fields.
Instead of asking you to bet on them, Lambda first bets on you. Lambda’s model is built on Income Share Agreements (ISAs) – meaning students pay no tuition upfront, instead paying back 17% of income post-graduation for two years, but only once you’re making $50,000 or more.
And if you don’t find a job within 5 years? You pay nothing. Lambda School’s incentive aligned model allows them to invest in extensive career services support, all oriented towards helping you find a job in web development or data science.
The Lambda School Unlock Your Potential Scholarship is designed to help the software engineers of the future launch their careers!
This scholarship will have rolling monthly application deadlines. Students applying within earlier application windows will have a greater chance of winning the award.
The application deadline is Aug 31, 2021. Winners will be announced on Apr 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000. It will be awarded to 1 winner every year.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 1, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
