Digital Her scholarship

As well as inspiring the next generation of young women in education, we recognise that there is a crucial need to encourage and support opportunities of access to women looking to retrain or return to tech. 


Women only make up 20% of the technical workforce in the digital and technology sector. This needs to change. 


Did you know that Developer continues to be the most in demand job in tech? This means there is an excellent opportunity for an awesome career in tech, regardless of your experience or background.  


Learning the right digital skills can open up a world of opportunity. 


You can do anything if you know how. That’s why during 2020 Digital Her has teamed up with our Code Nation to offer four, fully funded coding scholarships. 


During this 3 month supported training programme, our Digital Her’s will become a Junior Developer by learning core coding principles, front and back-end development, and key commercial and soft skills such as the agile methodology and teamwork. 


The dates for the programme are: 

  • 20th April 2020 (deadline 30th March)

  • 18th May 2020 (deadline 27th April)

  • 29th June 2020 (deadline 8th June)

  • 20th July 2020 (deadline 29th June)


All Digital Her scholars will receive a fast track guaranteed place at the Manchester Digital Software Development Apprenticeship Programme assessment day, where you will get the opportunity to meet tech employers looking to hire.
