2019 RTC Fellowship Application is Now Open!
Rewriting the Code is a national nonprofit dedicated to college women in tech, launched in the fall 2016, to support first through fourth year students throughout their undergraduate computer science, engineering, math and statistics experience.
As you are keenly aware, the retention rate of computer science majors, particularly in computer science, is a concern we all share. The 12-month program provides an extensive community of peers and offerings that is hoped will help address many of the challenges identified by this community of women students.
The Rewriting the Code Program offers
- Exposure to technology disciplines, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, data science & cybersecurity, through educational sessions led by tech company and academic thought leaders.
- Connection to tech leaders and early career employees to share personal experiences and their respective company’s possible career paths for students pursuing computer science and engineering degrees.
- Advice from a broad network of company tech leaders, near peers, mentors and women + men role models.
- Development of key personal and leadership skills such as networking, confidence building, communication, negotiation and navigating challenging situations through discussions, speakers, and curated articles throughout the year.
- Partnerships with companies to offer summer internships that provide meaningful projects led by engaged managers.
- Community engagement with peers, mentors, companies and more.
Today, Rewriting the Code is comprised of 1,000+ members, who may join at any time throughout the year. Annually, it offers college women the opportunity to apply to the Rewriting the Code Fellowship Program. The 2019 Fellowship Application opens on April 1st for a period of 30 days. Fellows have extensive access to our growing list of company partners, participate in summer enrichment programs and participate in unique educational and corporate events throughout the year. There is absolutely no cost to students.
