About the Edie Windsor Coding Scholarship
The Edie Windsor Coding Scholarship fund makes it possible for new, incoming gender nonconforming & LGBTQ+ women to kickstart careering in technology.
Learning how to code is more than education, it's economic opportunity | It's the promise of a career with a six figure salary. Our community, like many underrepresented groups, are turning to coding schools because they are more accessible than four-year Computer Science degrees.We named our Scholarship after a LGBTQ & technology legend, Edie Windsor | To recognize her heroic victory over the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)-and to celebrate her technical leadership as a computer programming pioneer at IBM. In love & work, Edie Windsor is one of our community's greatest role models. We want to be a part of telling her story, so that future generations of technical queer women can know her, helping inspire future generations of LGBTQ technical women.
