Codeacademy scholarship for students and teachers
Codeacademy provides 10K scholarships
Codecademy teaches millions of learners web development, mobile development, and data science skills. In the wake of school closures due to COVID-19, we’re 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. Those students get access to the same features that every Codecademy Pro learner does: roadmaps to figure out what to learn, thousands of hours of courses and projects to learn programming and data science, and a community of supportive peers. — March 19, 2020
Over 100,000 Student Scholarship Awarded:  We launched our scholarship program with the goal of helping 10,000 students who’ve had their studies interrupted by COVID-19 get access to a coding education. And in just one month, we awarded Pro scholarships to over 100,000 students around the world!  So now, we want to also help the millions of people who’ve lost their jobs because of this pandemic, too. Our new goal is to give Pro to 100,000 impacted workers. And with your support, we can make it happen.  — April 2020
