Dev League Announces Scholarships and Tuition-Assistance for Three New Courses

 

Female Hacker Scholarship, Upstart.com partnership and Oahu WorkLinks job program help qualified applicants pay for coding boot camp

 

Honolulu – Today, Dev League (http://devleague.com) is announcing two scholarships, as well as partnerships with both a tuition-assistance loan plan and a federally funded workforce development program to help motivated individuals learn professional web development at its coding boot camp located at the Manoa Innovation Center. The graduates of the 12-week boot camp gain access to the company’s 27 employer partners seeking to hire entry-level web developers both here in Hawaii and on the mainland.

 

The Female Hacker scholarship is 25 percent off the cost of tuition for a single selected female applicant. The Low Income Scholarship is 100 percent off the cost of tuition for a single qualifying applicant. Dev League sponsors both scholarships in an effort to increase diversity and opportunity for demographics in the tech industry that are currently under represented.

 

Dev League’s partnership with Upstart.com is a tuition-assistance plan that enables applicants to crowd fund their own tuition over a term of five or 10 years with repayment based on future income. With over $3 million in pledges to date for 284 “upstarts”, this unique loan program helps match qualified “upstart” individuals with “backers” who make offers to help fund an individual. Dev League is one of  only a handful of coding boot camps that Upstart.com has integrated into their funding program.

 

Oahu WorkLinks job development program helps qualified applicants to pay up to 80 percent of the tuition of Dev League via its federally funded job training services as part of the Workforce Investment Act program. Funds available through the program are grants.

“At just over the half-way point of the current boot camp, students recently hosted a developer presentation for other working professionals on a popular JavaScript framework, as well as hosted a booth at the recent Mini Maker Faire held at Iolani School’s Sullivan Center for Innovation and Leadership demonstrating real-time multi-user data synchronization via a web application with integration using Raspberry Pi hardware to create a portable crowd driven jukebox,” says Dev League co-founder and curriculum developer Jason Sewell.

 

To learn more about the scholarships, tuition-assistance programs and to apply, visit the Dev League web site athttp://devleague.com/devleague. The company has posted three new courses on its web site. These include:

  • Part-time 26-week evening course, April 28 to October 25
  • Full-time 12-week day course, May 27 to August 15
  • Full-time 12-week day course, September 2 to November 21

“Applicant admission and screening for all courses happens immediately after we receive your application,” says Sewell. “We make scholarship decisions based on the quality of the applications we receive. Early applications get priority treatment. Space is limited to 20 students per course so apply now to reserve your spot.”
