  • Part 1: Immersive training with exceptional partners

    Digital Academy scholarships provide students with user experience design or web development training through trusted education partners. These partners provide ongoing feedback on student performance, and they help inform the apprentice placement process. Throughout the program, we focus heavily on providing community support and teaching growth mindset principles — both of which we’ve found crucial for student success.
