Our mission is to build a more diverse tech industry. We are constantly working to uplift people so that they can find the best possible job for them.
Our scholarships were created to bring more people into the Pathrise program who are looking to learn from experts, find a great job, and close the pay gap. Through our workshops and 1-on-1 sessions, we continue to help hundreds of people find fulfilling work at companies that support their growth.
At Pathrise, we are working to close the gender gap in tech by empowering more women on their search for the best possible job. Our program teaches lifelong skills and our negotiation tactics regularly increase our fellows’ salaries by 10-20%, helping to close the wage gap as well. This scholarship is open to any individuals who self-identify as women.
When we diversify our organizations, we open up the room to new voices and companies change for the better. Our Diversify Tech scholarship helps make the Pathrise program more inclusive to people from underrepresented groups within tech who are looking to optimize their job search and find a great job. This scholarship is open to any individuals who self-identify as Black, Latinx, Pacific Islander, and Native American.
Finding a job where you can be your most true self is essential to doing your best work, but for so many LGBTQ+ people, it is more difficult to find roles in companies that are supportive and inclusive. At Pathrise, we will teach you how to search for jobs that are right for you and guide you through the process so that you end up somewhere that you love. This scholarship is open to any individuals who self-identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community, including genderqueer, non-binary, and transgender individuals.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on needs and merit. Each scholarship category above will be evaluated separately. All applicants are considered for these scholarships and eligible upon application. Scholarship recipients are decided on at the end of the admissions process per cohort.
There is no upfront cost required to enroll in Pathrise; we only get paid when you do. Pathrise scholarship recipients receive a reduction up to 50% of their income share payments. Alternatively, scholarship recipients may instead choose to pay a 50% reduced upfront tuition. On a needs-based basis, further financial coverage is possible.
As a part of this scholarship, recipients may pay their income share agreement with a variety of available extensions. We hope this more lenient timeline will allow for recipients to balance their income share with existing financial commitments.
You probably have some questions — we have answers
We have various free resources that are available to everyone, but there is no required prep work or pre-work before Pathrise. As a part of our selection process for the program, we do our best to provide applicants who are not a good fit or not quite ready for Pathrise with the best resouces to guide them. We recommend that you apply in order for our admissions managers to have a chance to review your profile and suggest the best resouces based off of your situation. 10 hours of work is required to be dedicated to your job search itself as a part of the program.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide our fellows or applicants with technological equipment at any time they are applying for, enrolled in, or after the program. However, in the past there have been cases where we were able to provide fellows with employment opportunities or other kinds of assistance during their time in the program. We recommend you reach out to your advisor once you are enrolled to see what kind of informal assistance may be available.
