There is a serious gender gap in tech -- in the education pipeline, the employed workforce and the visibility of talented women in tech.
This is something we've been passionate about for a long time - with our girl-boss founder driving the way, over 80% of our students have been female. That's why we've been committed to initiatives that break down the barriers for women in tech, and why we are excited to announce this giveaway -- it's an opportunity to do more, to make an impact.
We've partnered with Women Who Code to give away 6x $1000 scholarships. We want to help you launch a new career, one that empowers you to work from anywhere and live your life on your own terms.
You'll walk away after 10 days in Bali with tangible digital skills ready to start a new career as a web developer or social media manager AND our lifetime support guarantee -- so we'll be by your side long after the course ends.

Can you believe only 5% of startups have a female founder?
Or that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million jobs available in computing related fields in the US but at this point, women are on track to fill just 3% of these roles.
When we post a job ad hiring mentors for Institute of Code, for every woman who applies there are 30 men.
I've been very lucky to have been surrounded by strong, ambitious women my entire life, and growing up never felt like there was anything I couldn't do just because 'I was a girl'.
But many aren't that lucky. Girls are handed dolls while boys are handed lego and blocks. Studies show that boys are pushed harder in maths, and encouraged more to enter STEM fields. If you don't recognise the gap, try asking 100 people to name an inspiring leader in tech and count on one hand how many aren't white males.
I am passionate about seeing more incredible women break into or accelerate their careers in the digital space. I want my cousins, my god-daughter and all the gorgeous girls I know to have the opportunity to become whoever they want to be, in whatever field inspires them. And it all starts with learning to code.
- Tina May, Co-Founder of Institute of Code

We take away all the stress and distractions of every day life, and hold our workshops in an environment designed to cater to your every need so that you can just focus on what you came here to do -- learn. Each day you wake up at our private campus in Canggu Bali, and wander downstairs for swim in the pool or optional sunrise yoga. All of your meals will be provided by our in-house chef team, and our resident IOC-puppy Houdini is always around to make you smile (studies show having a dog around reduces stress and improves productivity!)

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by applying.
This scholarship is open to anyone who identifies as a woman, anywhere in the world. The only requirements are that you understand english (as that's the language the course will be delivered in) and you are over 18 years old. We're LGBTIQ friendly, and can accomodate most dietary and learning requirements.
If selected, this scholarship can be used towards our Jun 17 - 26 Web Development Course or July 1 - 10 Social Media Courses, both of which are held in Bali, Indonesia. If you can't attend one of the June / July programs we have a limited number of $500 scholarships for the November 2019 programs.
As with all of our courses, tuition fees include 10 nights accomodation, airport transfer, all meals, water, tea and coffee, all curriculum materials and ongoing lifetime support for the skills you have learned. The tution cost is $4500 and the scholarship covers $1000, so the remaining tuition cost is only $3500 USD. We only require a minimum of $1000 to be paid before the course date and the balance can be split into interest-free installments over 6-12 months.
