Today, Docker is proud to announce the launch of the Docker Scholarship Program in partnership with Reactor Core to improve opportunities for underrepresented groups in the tech industry! With the help of the community, we surpassed our goal for the DockerCon 2016 Bump Up Challenge unlocking $50,000 to fund three full tuition scholarships.

The Docker Scholarship Program is part of ourcontinued workto improve opportunities for women and underrepresented groups throughout the global Docker ecosystem and encourage inclusivity in the larger tech community.

Docker’s Goal

The goal of the Docker scholarship program is to strengthen the broader tech community by making it more diverse and inclusive to traditionally underrepresented groups. We aim to achieve that goal by providing financial support and mentorship to three students at Reactor Core’s partner schools, Hack Reactor and Telegraph Academy .

Our Partnership with Hack Reactor and Telegraph Academy

Docker believes in the power of innovation and pushing our current technological boundaries. As a driver of innovation, we embrace our role in  advancing opportunities for underrepresented groups in the tech industry. Hack Reactor and Telegraph Academy share in our vision of empowering people and creating more opportunities for every member of our community. We are inspired by their commitment to improving the status quo for underrepresented groups in the tech industry.
