Founded by Digital Society Fund & TalentLabs, the Grace Hopper Scholarship is inspired by Grace Brewster Murray Hopper, one of the female pioneers of computer programming. Grace's purpose is to bring greater diversity to the technology sector by equipping women with the support, skills, and experience needed to become professional software engineers/data analysts to contribute to the future of tech.
The Grace Hopper Scholarship will support up to 40 female scholars into digital careers through a 100% scholarship for one of our two courses - Certified Associate in Software Engineering (CASE) or Certified Associate in Data Analytics (CADA). Other than the fully-funded technology education, an impressive list of tech companies will support the Grace Hopper Scholars by offering careers support, insight and opportunities.
The application of this scholarship is open to all recent female graduates/final year students from all SEA countries (and Hong Kong). We select our Fellows not only based on their leadership ability and academic achievement, but also on whether they have demonstrated the potential to become the global leaders of technology in the next generation.
It is our ultimate goal to help you to land your dream job in the tech sector. You will be given a choice to pursue one of the two courses TalentLabs curated. The Certified Software Engineering Associate (CASE) programme is an immersive full-stack coding programme which prepares our fellows to become skilled software developers. On the other hand, the Certified Associate in Data Analytics (CADA) course introduces fellows to the application of the tools of modern data analytics, visualisation and optimisation to solve real-world business problems. This scholarship will help you to put together a portfolio of real-world project work and provide you the opportunities to be placed at one of the most prestigious technology companies within our networks to further your career.
Scholars will embark on a 6-month journey to become a certified software engineering/data analytics associate. During the programme, you will be involved in a high impact and immersive learning experience, with the guidance of an assigned supervisor from leading technology companies. You will develop industry-relevant skills that can be applied to real-world business scenarios. After 3 months of technical training, we will kick start our placement initiative by having a placement week. During this week, we will arrange placement interviews for every scholar with our hiring partners. Successful candidates will be offered a 1-year placement at the company. You will have the chance to work with industry experts, while continuing your 6-month training course.
