You Belong In Tech Scholarship

Sustainable Startups, META, and V School are excited to announce a new scholarship opportunity:  You Belong in Tech: 100% funding for V School’s online program in UX/UI design or web development, career development training, and job search assistance.

With “You Belong in Tech,” our goal is to provide unique, experience-based, and mastery-based career training that will lead to opportunities in the tech industry for underrepresented communities in Utah.
