We Stand Together Scholarship
To plan for a more equitable future in tech, Galvanize announced the launch of a $1.8m “Opportunity Fund” in 2020 to fund full tuition scholarships for students who identify as Black or African-American to its Hack Reactor 19-Week Beginning Coding Bootcamp. According to Pew Research Center, Black workers continue to be underrepresented in the STEM workforce, making up 11% of the U.S. workforce overall but only representing 9% of STEM workers.
