We believe you have all the talent you need to work in tech, and we’re ready to help you gain access to the skills, experience, and network you need to succeed. 

The Code2040 Fellows Program

The Code2040 Fellows Program builds bridges between top, college-level Black and Latinx computer science students who want to access the Innovation Economy and have been historically overlooked and companies who are in need of this talent. In the process, Fellows gain the network and experience they need to have careers in the sector and company partners learn how to operationalize diversity and inclusion with entry level candidates.

Our Code2040 Fellows spend their summer in an intensive career accelerator between June and August. Fellows intern at a top-tech company and participate in a series of workshops designed to equip them with the tools and resources they need to navigate the tech industry and build an exciting career.

And they won’t do this alone: Being a Fellow means building community with other Black and/or Latinx technologists, receiving support from mentors and managers, redefining the future and face of tech, and ensuring other technologists from their community have the opportunity to succeed in the innovation economy.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be an undergraduate or graduate student planning to return to school in the fall semester following the internship (Fall 2018)

  • Have experience coding

  • Attend a U.S. college or university

  • Demonstrate leadership potential

  • Self-identify as Black and/or Latinx

Our 2018 Application Is Closed.

tech Trek

Tech Trek is an all-expenses paid, alternative spring break that brings together Black and Latinx computer science students from across the United States for a week of deep peer-bonding and visits to Bay Area tech companies. In this program, you'll engage with company leaders, engineers, and innovators from diverse backgrounds, meet fellow Black and Latinx technologists, and leave with the network, resources, and community you need to launch and sustain your tech career.

Hear from our Tech Trek '17 cohort!

Applications are currently closed for our second annual Tech Trek. Please check back in December.
