It’s that time of year again! Time to get going on scholarship applications for a full ride to Hack Reactor in Fall 2017. Our latest round opened July 2, 2017 and closes August 19, 2017.
Applicable cohorts include:
Finish the scholarship questionnaire and submit a video
Do your Hack Reactor application and pass the admissions challenge
Schedule and complete the technical interview before the deadline
Wait to hear if you’re a winner! (Announcement September 2)
For this round, we’re adding one special component. In April 2017, Facebook donated $250,000 to the Telegraph Track program based at the Hack Reactor San Francisco campus (launching Fall 2017 for Remote Full Time). In addition to scholarships given out from Hack Reactor’s general fund, applicants can opt-in to be considered for the Facebook scholarship opportunity.
To be eligible for this full-tuition scholarship, candidates must follow the same process laid out for the general scholarship fund which starts here. Currently, this opportunity is only for students interested in attending the October 9, 2017 Hack Reactor San Francisco or Remote Full Time cohorts. The application time period is July 2 to August 19 (same as the general fund). All previously stated guidelines and instructions apply. Keeping in line with the spirit of the Telegraph Track program and the intended focus of the Facebook scholarship, applicants MUST answer an additional essay question to be considered. The general application has 4 essay questions but we added an additional question for those who would like to be considered for this scholarship. Applicants must answer: “how do you identify as underrepresented and how has that affected your journey in joining the tech industry?”
We can’t wait to see your applications and learn more about why you’re so excited about becoming a software engineer with the help of Hack Reactor. As always, please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
