About the OneTen/BIT Scholarship Program

No bachelor’s degree? No problem. If you’re a Black job-seeker with an interest in tech who doesn’t have a 4-year degree, this scholarship program is for you.

Today's challenge

The tech industry offers some of the fastest-growing and in-demand employment opportunities today. But these opportunities have been unequal and exclusionary—especially for people of color and people without 4-year degrees.
