Supporting Our Student Leaders Across the US

In recognition of our Tech Fellows' dedication in creating learning opportunities for other students, CodePath is excited to create a scholarship program to ease our Tech Fellows' challenges.

10 Tech Fellows will receive a scholarship award of $5,000 per person for delivering positive program health, exemplifying CodePath's values (see below), and closely collaborating with CodePath's Gurus and Operations teams.

Eligibility Criteria

All Fall 2020 Tech Fellows who run a CodePath course this semester or quarter are eligible to apply for the scholarship award.

Note: Tech Fellows must meet minimum application/enrollment requirements to run a class. Tech Fellows who do not meet the minimum application/enrollment numbers to run a class will not be eligible to apply.

Nomination and Assessment Process

To apply for the scholarship, Tech Fellows will need to first nominate themselves (or have their Gurus nominate them) by submitting the application form below (the application form will open on October 19).

Tech Fellows will be assessed throughout the Fall 2020 semester/quarter on their course delivery performance, exemplification of CodePath's values, and collaboration with the Gurus and Operations team members.

Part I: How does the Tech Fellow deliver a positive program experience and collaborate effectively with the Gurus and Operations teams? 

Tech Fellows will be measured according to a scoring and assessment developed by the Gurus and Operations team. 

Part II: How does the Tech Fellow best exemplify CodePath’s values throughout the Fall 2020 semester/quarter?

As part of the application form (to be open on October 19), Tech Fellows (or Gurus) will submit written essays that best describe how they exemplify the following CodePath values: 

  • Keep promises to our students: Does the Tech Fellow work with integrity and strive to always keep his/her commitments to our students?
  • Empower Others: Does the Tech Fellow work with an eye towards lifting up and empowering others to succeed?
  • Empathy and Diversity: Does the Tech Fellow strive to stay curious and constantly build stronger empathy, acting from a place of understanding when interacting with each other and our students?
  • Growth towards excellence: Does the Tech Fellow strive for extremely high standards of quality, even when no one expects it?
