Nov 01, 2018 Written by FIRST Scholarship Provider: Make School

Hello FIRST Participants!

Since 2012, Make School has been empowering students to build products that positively impact their communities. In pursuit of that mission, we are excited to offer a new Bachelor’s degree in Applied Computer Science*. Our emphasis is on ensuring the relevance of education for the modern economy and accessibility to students of all backgrounds.

Our education is project-based, so students attending the program graduate in 2-3 years with a portfolio of projects that are impressive to employers in the tech industry. The average salary of graduates is $95k and our alumni have gone on to work for companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, and Tesla. And best of all, students don’t have to pay until they’re employed.

Make School is offering 2 travel reimbursement scholarships (up to $500) to our Open House (Jan 15) to FIRST participants/alumni that apply and are admitted to the program! Beginner to advanced coders are encouraged to apply and accomplishments outside of coding are considered in applications.
