Lesbians Who Tech launch coding scholarship honoring Edie Windsor


Lesbians Who Tech, the organization for lesbian and queer women in tech, will select more than ten lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer women to receive scholarships to attend coding bootcamps at General Assembly, Dev Bootcamp and Turing.

There is no deadline for applications, and acceptance is on a rolling basis, organizers told WiVR.

The coding scholarship fund project, named after mathematician, programmer and LGBT pioneer Edie Windsor, was launched earlier this year on Kickstarter.

Partner organization Dev Bootcamp committed $100,000 to match the fund raising goal. The selected women will attend a coding school of their choice and their coding tuition reduced by 50 percent.
