The Horizons Fellowship supports 10 outstanding university students in their pursuit to become leaders in technology. The program provides immersive software engineering and web/mobile development courses geared towards high-achieving college students. No computer science background needed and we invite business and liberal arts students to apply! Our curriculum, developed by ex-Salesforce, Optimizely, and D.E. Shaw engineers, is designed to teach students how to build web, mobile (iOS and Android) and desktop applications. We have a 4-month spring program and a 3-month summer program in San Francisco, Boston, and Philadelphia.
The Horizons Mentor Network includes current/past employees of firms such as Google, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, Snapchat, and more. As a Horizons student/graduate, you will have permanent access to this exceptional group of mentors to help with career choices, general mentorship, and more.
Two graduates of our latest summer cohort have been placed at NASA and Thrive Capital within 2 weeks of the program. Others are currently interviewing for engineering roles at Lyft, Airbnb, Andreessen Horowitz, Asana, Heap, Slack and more.
Past Horizonites have come from a variety of schools and backgrounds. Students have hailed from Harvard, Princeton, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, Northwestern, Brown, Michigan and more. We've welcomed National Math Olympiad winners, USA Computing Olympiad participants, renowned college entrepreneurs, students with perfect SAT/ACT scores, talented designers, photographers, and more as part of our previous cohort. Our program requires no formal computer science background.
