About this program

If you’re a member of the African-American community with an interest in tech and you don't have a four-year degree, this scholarship program is for you.

The OneTen/BIT Scholarship Program aims to help eager learners looking to advance their skills in business analytics, digital marketing, or front end web development and prepare for an exciting, high-paying career in tech.

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 four-year degrees.

OneTen, the Blacks In Technology Foundation, and Udacity are teaming up to create change. This program aims to give Black learners without four-year degrees family-sustaining and generational wealth-building opportunities while also disrupting the status quo.

Apply to the OneTen/BIT Scholarship Program today and gain applicable skills to start a new career in tech and help break open the industry for the advancement of Black talent.
"I am now gracefully employed as a full-time software developer because of this scholarship. I use everything I’ve learned through Udacity daily in my role. The material learned gave me complete confidence in accepting this role."
