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. Students need not have a computer science background! Their curriculum, developed by ex-Salesforce and Optimizely engineers alongside PhD candidates in computer science, is designed to teach students how to build web, mobile, and desktop applications. We have 4-month semester programs and 3-month summer programs in cities across the U.S. The fellowship covers all tuition and housing costs for an immersive program that equips high-potential students with technology skills and perspective.
Horizons students have gone on to receive offers from firms such as Google, Facebook, Slack, Yelp, McKinsey, BCG, Visa, J.P. Morgan, and more
