We Invest in Your Career

We are awarding $1.3 million in scholarships to people who demonstrate a commitment to launching their career in software engineering

The Hack Reactor Scholarship

As part of our mission to increase access to tech jobs for individuals of all professional backgrounds and experience levels, Hack Reactor is proud to announce our $1.3 million Scholarship Fund for individuals who are passionate about coding.

Hack Reactor believes in a more diverse and equitable tech workforce. As part of our Diversity and Inclusion efforts, we will be awarding at least 50% of all scholarships to underrepresented groups in software engineering*. Women, People of Color and LGBTQ community members are strongly encouraged to apply.

*Data source: US Census Bureau & NACME. 50% is a minimum indicator - our goal is to reach higher.
