In the spirit of the season, Awele Academy will be offering scholarship opportunities to a select number of people.
Applications are presently open for their first cohort which will take place in Lagos. The acceptance rate is very slim as there is only room for 20 participants, both men and women. The bootcamp will last only three weeks.
The initial 3 week coding bootcamp is a part of their extensive 12 week training period. To complete the remaining 9 weeks of the entire program, participants would have to register for the advanced classes at the end of the three week camp.
By the end of the 3 weeks, participants would have built a simple application that addresses an issue in Nigeria using LAMP and all technical skills gained. There will be opportunities to network with leaders in tech and showcase projects created. The 3-week bootcamp will cost N95,000.
Awele Institute is an immersive software engineering school for African women that also focuses on Technology Leadership and Entrepreneurship. They provide coding bootcamps, STEM and Computer Science camps, short classes and workshops for girls and youth.
