The student awarded the scholarship will attend weekly mentorship meetings with a BeSmartee Engineer, where they’ll be offered guidance and support throughout the 14-week Full Immersion program.
The Women in Tech Scholarship and Mentorship program is part of a key ongoing diversity and inclusion initiative backed by BeSmartee’s leadership.
“We believe that mentoring women, while they learn how to code, will help them flourish and encourage others in the community to pursue more technical roles. Our team is excited to mentor the women at LearningFuze, share their knowledge and, ultimately, close the gender gap,” said Veronica Nguyen, co-founder and EVP of BeSmartee.

“LearningFuze is excited to partner with BeSmartee as we work to close the gender gap in technology. Raising awareness about this issue is great but scholarships like this one tackle the issue head on; both making tech more financially accessible and providing mentorship that many women new to the industry found hard to get in the past,” said TJ Kinion, program manager and career services director at LearningFuze.
