Presenting the Athena Scholarship

The Athena Scholarship Programme is currently closed, therefore we aren't accepting any further applications for the foreseeable. With women making up only 26% of roles in tech, we know we have a long way to go to ensuring equal representation in the industry. Through our new Scholarship, Le Wagon and Showcode are working hard to make our programmes and communities as accessible and inclusive to women and non-binary people to begin to address this imbalance.
