The course, usually costing £8,000, teaches web development to novices and concludes with introductions to top London tech companies.
It’s not the only bit of teamwork for the training program – Makers Academy kindly hosted Tech City News‘ Week in Tech at their offices last month.
Makers Academy is usually highly selective when choosing students for its training program, but applicants for the scholarship will undergo a rigorous selection procedure.
Makers Academy founder Rob Johnson said:
“Coding is an incredible asset for any employee to bring to the table when starting out on a new career.
“Through partnering with Enternships we aim to make that happen for one lucky individual!”
Enternships connects young people to entrepreneurial work opportunities in more than 4,500 startups across the world.
Founder Rajeeb Dey said:
“Tomorrow’s most important innovations will come from those who can carve out their own space on the web, and as such, core development skills cannot be underestimated.”
The scholarship will run until June 20th – you can apply at makers.enternships.com.
After the scholarship’s deadline, the top 10 applications will be chosen and invited to interview during the week commencing June 24th.
The winner will be announced on June 30th.
