While the tech industry has made progress in recent years, many historically marginalized groups continue to be underrepresented, and therefore underserved. That’s why we're offering the Changemakers Scholarship to underrepresented groups, worth up to $1,275 off all career-change programs. To claim your scholarship, simply book a call with one of our program advisors and mention why you want to apply for the Changemakers Scholarship on your call.

Scholarship eligibility

Applicants must identify as a person from one or more of the following communities: women or non-binary, Black, Latine, LGBTQIA+. Our advisors will answer any questions you have about the Changemakers Scholarship, our career change programs and what it’s like to learn with CareerFoundry. There’s no cost and no obligation for this free consultation. Please note this scholarship cannot be combined with any other ongoing scholarship or discount.

Why these groups

It’s well documented that BIPOC employees are vastly underrepresented in the tech industry. For example, a report by Diversity in Tech U.K. reports that only 15% of the tech workforce in the U.K. are from B.A.M.E. (Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic) backgrounds. Another report from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission shows that workers in tech careers in the U.S. are 68% White, 20% Asian American, 5% Black, and 5% Hispanic.

Furthermore, according to the UN report from 2022, women make up just 3% of global tech students. Research from UNESCO shows women only make up 28% of the global tech workforce.

Non-binary and LGBTQIA+ students also remain underrepresented. One report by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) found that 29% of LGBTQIA+ young people chose to avoid a career in S.T.E.M. due to fears that they would be discriminated against in the industry.
