Win a coding scholarship

January 5, 2018 / Miami

We are thrilled to announce that for the second year in a row, we’re partnering with award-winning tech bootcamp Ironhack to offer coding scholarships to Florida driver-partners and riders. Last year, we awarded $100,000 in scholarships – this year, we’re doubling the total funding to $200,000 in scholarships to kickstart coding careers in Florida.

Four winners will be awarded full scholarships (each valued at $11,000) to take one of Ironhack’s 2018 bootcamps, and 40+ partial scholarships to Ironhack’s 2018 bootcamps will be awarded to additional winners.
