SCWIST is pleased to offer digital literacy scholarships to support women who are looking to access opportunities for professional development and pursue careers in technology.

Recognizing the financial challenges that women face due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SCWIST has partnered with Lighthouse Labs to offer scholarships for technology upskilling and reskilling courses. These scholarships extend SCWIST’s financial support to women to upgrade their skills for integrating into Canada’s tech industry.

Read about the experiences of last year’s SCWIST Digital Literacy Scholarship winners.

Applicants can choose between three of the most popular skill-building courses at Lighthouse Labs including web development, front-end javascript and data analytics. All courses are part-time and offered over a 6-week period starting in mid-October in an interactive “Online Live” classroom setting.

One scholarship application per person, please. Scholarship winners will be notified via email at the end of September and sent a special link to register for their course.

Thank you for your interest but applications are now closed. We will be contacting successful candidates in early October.
