Making Designs For A More Diverse Future | Women & Minority UX Scholarship

by Raven Davis

Technology is awesome; which is why everyone should have access to it, the ability to learn about it, and the opportunity to develop skills within it. General Assembly seems to agree.

Earlier this year, General Assembly, along with 500 StartupsDave McClure, created Opportunity Fund, a scholarship program for women and minorities designed to make careers in technology more accessible and diverse. The scholarship money will be put towards General Assembly’s User Experience Development Immersive program, contributing to the underlying theme of the program, which is to effect social change through the use of design.

The scholarship will be awarded to 4 recipients and will include hands-on training, $8,000 towards tuition, and a housing stipend that will allow recipients to take the course at any of the 7 locations worldwide that it’s offered.

The application deadline is November 10th, 2014, and candidates from all around the world are encouraged to apply. The course will officially begin on December 1, 2014.
