After June 15th, 2019, all you need to do is go to the MyJudson "apply" page here. Fill out the form and check "Scholarship Requested." Scholarship funds are distributed pending both funds availability and need.
There are two ways to send a deserving student to the JUDS Bootcamp: 1) become a corporate or private sponsor or 2) become an academic partner. The specifics are below:
Corporate or private sponsors have six benefits you can configure guided by our benefits team. Funds can be
apportioned to any combination of the following benefits that you desire:
1. To underwrite the scholarships of deserving students in the bootcamp.
2. To underwrite our mentoring program which connects students with world-class data science mentors.
3. To send students to internship opportunities at corporations - including yours!
4. To build out the SaaS and cloud software and infrastructure (software) in our Data Science and Machine Learning Research Lab.
5. To purchase software and applications for deserving student for their ongoing use after the bootcamp.
6. To underwrite the computers our students will use.
Lastly, but quite importantly, your sponsorship dollars may be able to be doubled by matching grant monies for which JUDS is currently applying!
The JUDS Bootcamp has three tiers of academic partners:
Tier One: JUDS Diversity and Inclusion Partners. In this tier, Judson partners with colleges, universities, community colleges and advanced STEM high schools to place deserving students in the Bootcamp. These will be the deserving "at need" students that Judson will present to corporate diversity officers. There is no cost to the Diversity Partner for this service.
Tier Two: JUDS Matching Grant Partners. In this tier, Judson partners with the same institutions as above but these institutions remit at least one-half the funds for the Bootcamp's tuition to Judson and Judson will seek to match that amount with corporate diversity dollars.
Tier Three: JUDS Matching Student Program Partner. In this tier, Judson partners with the same institutions as above but those institutions put up all the funds for the Bootcamp tuition for at least one student. In this case Judson will will seek to match that amount with corporate diversity dollars. In the event that Judson cannot meet this goal, the students will still be enrolled in the program.
