GirlDevelopIt Scholarship

Our goal is to be a sustainable organization that offers low-cost web development classes to women. If there's a class that you want to attend but cannot afford for financial reasons, please apply for a scholarship here. We grant individual class scholarships and scholarships for the entire series of classes.

NOTE: Scholarship applications submitted less than a week before the class date may not allow us the time to consider your request.

    GDI Scholarship policy affirmation

    GDI SF values financial accessibility and believes in making our classes available to women of all financial means. For this reason, our classes cost a very reasonable $9-12 an hour, which allows us to provide food and pay our highly qualified instructors and class organizers a modest fee to thank them for their time. We also understand that for some women even low fees can be a financial hardship, and so we offer full scholarships as an option. Women can apply for a full scholarship for any class. We will not ask you to provide proof of income to apply – we trust that you understand that scholarships are intended for women who could not afford to attend without financial help. There are a limited amount of scholarships available for each class, so if you can afford to pay for any one class, we ask that you refrain from asking for a scholarship to provide opportunity for a woman who cannot afford it to attend. And, if you’re awarded a scholarship, we count on you to attend, or notify us at least 2 business days before the class if you can’t attend by writing sf-finance@girldevelopit.com to specify the day of the class you can’t attend. The SF chapter pays for food and instructor costs for all scholarship students, so it’s important to us to know who’ll be there and if we can offer a scholarship spot to someone on the waiting list. If you repeatedly don’t attend classes where you’ve been awarded a scholarship, your future scholarship applications may be given a lower priority because we want to be sure that scholarship students are invested in attending classes.
