Build a better future with Tech4Good Changemaker Scholarship!
Tech4Good Changemaker Scholarship is aimed at people who want to learn web development or data science in order to create social impact. The ultimate goal is to close the gap of the social sector’s scarce IT human resources.

The Scholarship covers 30% of the tuition fee for Le Wagon Tokyo full-time and part-time web development and data science bootcamps. It is open for anyone worldwide and can be combined with other financial options.
Seira Yun, the founder of Socious, is a graduate of Le Wagon Tokyo web development program.  He has been successful in transitioning from a humanitarian worker to a Tech4Good entrepreneur.

“We launched Tech4Good Changemaker Scholarship to solve the shortage of IT talent in the social impact sector. We believe that talented web developers and data scientists can leverage the power of technology to help social impact organizations scale their solutions. We hope to empower people to learn to code and apply these skills to solve social problems,” said Seira.


Scholarship Eligibility Criteria
