Codecademy is now offering 10,000 scholarships to Codecademy Pro for free to high school and college students across the world for the rest of the school year.
The Pro memberships include unlimited Codecademy programming, data science, and mobile development curriculum, a community of peers, and paths to help students be successful.
CEO and Co-Founder Zach Sims says: “Our hope is that, while educational institutions are trying to catch up to remote learning, we can provide a service that helps fill the gaps and perhaps expose millions of students to a skill that will be helpful to their future. Moving to remote learning is hard, and we’ve been working on solutions for teachers, students, and adult learners for a while now.”
So far, over 7,000 students from 1,000 schools/colleges in over 85 countries around the world have redeemed the offer, and the company is considering expanding the offering to cover more students. More info can be found at Codecademy’s COVID-19 scholarships page.
