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’ve built a Bachelor’s degree program in Applied Computer Science that prepares students for career success in software engineering. 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 $100k 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 a $1000 scholarship to FIRST participants/alumni that apply, are admitted to the program, and go on to enroll! There is no required application fee and beginner to advanced coders are encouraged to apply.


We urge FIRST participants to apply as soon as possible - the early application deadline is November 10. Students who apply by that date, are also eligible to get up to $250 in travel credit and free accommodation for our Preview Weekend in February.
