Learning how to code is more than education — It’s economic opportunity. Our community, like many underrepresented groups, are turning to coding schools because they are more accessible than four-year, computer science degrees.
We named our scholarship after LGBTQ and technology legend, Edie Windsor, to recognize her heroic victory over the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and to celebrate her technical leadership as a computer programming pioneer at IBM. In love and work, Edie Windsor is one of our community’s greatest role models. We want to be a part of telling her story and helping inspire future generations of LGBTQ, technical women, and non-binary and trans individuals.
