Over the last 4 years, the Iron Yard has led the code school industry in preparing students for careers as software developers. The industry as a whole is still young and its leaders face the challenge of a nascent market, as well as the demands facing all institutions in the higher education marketplace.
In considering the current environment, the board of The Iron Yard has made the difficult decision to cease operations at all campuses after teaching out remaining summer cohorts. We will finish out summer classes completely, including career support.
While our journey is coming to an end, we will always take pride in the thousands of people our staff helped to launch new careers.
We try and do everything in our power to help as many people get access to technology education if they want it. If you are interested in learning to code or pursuing a career in software development, we want to help you do it. Many of the companies we work with want the same thing, which is why our partners often work with us to sponsor scholarships.
Scholarships for The Iron Yard can open up a world of possibility for students planning to take advantage of our courses. If you are interested in sponsoring a scholarship to help support deserving students, we want to hear from you. Scholarships from individuals, corporations, organizations and foundations are welcome.
The Iron Yard offers each diversity scholarship recipient a $1000 discount on the total cost of tuition and there is no cap on the number of students per class who can receive support. We believe in making technology more open and available to all groups that face barriers in the tech community, including women, people of color, and the LGBTQIA community.
The Iron Yard supports our Military Personnel and Veterans. If you're a member of either of these categories, you also qualify for this scholarship.
The #YesWeCode Fund is a scholarship initiative designed to increase diversity in the tech industry by removing financial barriers and increasing access to quality tech education. By unifying the efforts of code schools, government bodies, civic organizations and employers across the country, the Fund aims to award $100 million in code school diversity scholarships.
How to apply: Complete an application to our Web Development Career Path. Once accepted to the course, communicate your need for financial support to your Campus Director. Scholarship applications open in April 2017.
