Karlie Kloss: Victoria’s Secret Angel, ballerina, certified Taylor Swift bestie. Now, she can add patron of the tech world to that stellar resume.
The scholarship will cover the tuition for 20 young ladies to attend the Flatiron School’s two-week Introduction to Software Engineering course. You get to learn about the programming language behind sites like Twitter and even learn how to build an app. Karlie took the course last year and she loved it.
“I think its crucial that young women learn to code as early as possible to ensure that we, as young women, have a voice and a stake in what the world looks like,” Karlie said.
Want to apply? It’s super easy. Just fill out the application on the scholarship page and make a 30- to 90-second video explaining why you want to learn how to code and upload it to YouTube.
