Seattle & ChicagoAdvancing Women  in Data Science Scholarship

Metis is committed to creating a culture of inclusion and diversity within the exciting and growing field of data science for all women, trans, and/or non-binary Aspiring Data Scientists.

Women in Data Science

The "Advancing Women in Data Science Scholarship: For Women, Trans, and/or Non-binary Aspiring Data Scientists" is a full-tuition scholarship.

At Metis, we believe in encouraging and enabling women, trans, and/or non-binary people to enter the data science field. Since we started in the Fall of 2014, we’ve given more than $700k in scholarships to women attending our bootcamp. However, the gender disparity that exists within the industry, and is still prevalent within our classrooms, has prompted us to expand our efforts.

In 2018, women still only represent 15% of the workforce within the data science field 1, and there is still a huge gender disparity in tech 2 overall. This is why, in an effort to help women pursue a career in Data Science, Metis is offering 4 full scholarships 3 to women in the Seattle and Chicago (2 in each city) area whom have applied and been accepted to the Metis Data Science Bootcamp.

1. According to the 2018 Data Scientist Salary Report completed by the executive recruiting firm, Burtch Works.
2. Women make up less than one-third of all employees in the tech sector per Honeypot’s 2018 Women in Tech Index.
3. Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S. to qualify for the scholarship.
