WHAT IS DEVLEAGUE?
WHO SHOULD APPLY TO DEVLEAGUE?
I HAVE NO PRIOR PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE. SHOULD I APPLY TO JOIN DEVLEAGUE?
I ALREADY HAVE PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE. SHOULD I JOIN DEVLEAGUE?
As founders of the company we thought it was critical to give back to the community and so we created the Elevate Scholarship Fund.
We know there are many with the right character who just need a little help to get there and the premise of the Elevate Scholarship Fund will be a tuition award resource that we will fund $10K out of our pockets to every cohort. Not easy for a small startup.
In an effort to continue to promote the spirit of our Female Hacker scholarship we promise to always allot 25% of the fund to outstanding female applicants with the remaining 75% distributed based on need regardless of gender.
Invest in people. Invest in yourself. Aloha.
