    Hack Reactor and Optimizely, the leading experience optimization platform for A/B testing and personalization, are excited to announce the winners of our joint scholarship for women, which covers the cost of tuition at Hack Reactor and promises an internship with mentorship at Optimizely at the end of the program. While the scholarship program, I/Own It, was initially intended to have just one winner, the interest was overwhelming with over 200 applicants from around the world, and the program was expanded to include two half-scholarships.

The winner, Jessica Chong, and the finalists, Haley Bash and Amy Chiu, have all been accepted into Hack Reactor through our standard application process.
