Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need any experience to apply?

Definitely not! We're looking for people who are passionate about coding — whether you've been working on it for years or are just starting out.

Does where I live matter?

Nope! This program is online and self-paced so you can do it from wherever you are. In order to participate in an apprenticeship you will need to be available in one of the cities in which our partners are located.

When will I be notified if i was chosen?

We review applications as they come in and will award a new scholarship toward the beginning of every month. If we were not able to review your application in that month, you will be notified via email and be considered in the following month.

If I am chosen, do I have to start right away?

If you're awarded a scholarship, we will ask that you begin the course within 90 days, after which you will be expected to commit at least 15 hours per week to learning.

How long does the program take?

It depends on your level of commitment. The course tends to take 600-800 hours and students typically complete it over 4-8 months. We expect scholars to devote at least 15 hours/week and complete the entire program within 12 months.

If I'm not selected, can I re-apply later?

Absolutely! We get lots of incredible applicants and have to make the impossible choice of picking one each month. If you're not selected, we strongly encourage you to continue your coding journey and would be happy to see you apply again.

How can I strengthen my application?

The most important thing we're looking for is passion — we want to know why you want to learn to code. If you've never tried coding before or want to refresh your skills, here's a great module to try out: http://kodewithklossy.com/learn.
