NYC Web Development Fellowship Provides Free Fullstack Education

By: Daniel Weiss

Fullstack Academy has been selected by the New York City Tech Talent Pipeline as a career training partner for the Web Development Fellowship. This unique program aims to provide career accelerating education to NYC residents, launching them into lucrative, engaging, and fulfilling careers in software engineering.

Accepted applicants will receive a tuition-free, beginner-to-professional education from Fullstack Academy, including the Software Engineering Immersive, which has helped graduates gain employment at top tech firms, like Google, Amazon, Spotify, Facebook, Venmo, and Linkedin.

Participants in the NYC Web Development Fellowship will experience a tailored Fullstack Academy experience. Upon acceptance to the program, students will begin by taking Fullstack’s beginner-level bootcamp prep course to learn JavaScript programming syntax and fundamentals. (Note: Enrolled students may test out of Bootcamp Prep.)

Next, enrollment in the Full-Time Immersive program will begin with a 4-week, on-campus “Foundations” course to bring all students up-to-speed with the professional dev tools and intermediate-level programming concepts they’ll need once the core curriculum begins.

13-weeks of full-time, on-campus education will then transform students from hobbyists to professionals. During this time, participants will learn the most in-demand web development technologies -- like React, Node.js, and PostgreSQL -- and create an impressive portfolio of applications to present during the job search.

Instead of immediately launching a career search at this time, all participating web development fellows will engage in an 8-week, paid internship to expose them to real-world developer environments. Fullstack Academy will partner with a variety of companies to make sure this transition provides a superior educational experience.

Upon completion of this ~8 month journey, graduates will be poised to achieve amazing careers as developers at the city’s biggest tech companies and most innovative startups.

Fullstack Academy is now accepting applications on a rolling basis for the Web Development Fellowship beginning June 29, 2017. To participate in the fellowship, applicants must:

  • Be at least 18-years-old

  • Be a New York City resident

  • Have limited or no prior professional web development work experience

  • Earn less than $50,000 per year (or currently unemployed)

  • Meet federal selective service requirements

  • Be authorized to work in the United States
