Turing is committed to building a more diverse and inclusive tech community. Our mission is to unlock human potential by training a diverse and inclusive student body to succeed in high fulfillment technical careers.
We award scholarships based on a demonstrated desire to authentically influence the tech industry, financial need, and personal background. Turing is dedicated to fostering a culture where everyone is respected, appreciated, and valued to create a sense of belonging. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and different walks of life. Students who are successful at Turing are open-minded problem solvers who demonstrate an aptitude for logical thinking, a willingness to work hard, and an enthusiasm about shaking up the tech industry.

Turing stands for the inclusion and equality of all people, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, zip code, background, or life experience. When we look at the tech industry overall, though, we see significant biases and a lot of missing faces. So many amazing people who could make monumental contributions to software development have not yet entered the field. This needs to change.
People build software to solve problems, but we tend to only solve problems when we know they exist. Until the experiences of all software developers begin to mirror the experiences of all software users, real problems will remain unsolved and real needs will remain unmet. If you don’t see yourself as fitting some “typical software developer mold”, then you are exactly who we need. We want you to study at Turing precisely because you break the mold. Your differences are valuable.
At Turing School, we want to do what we can to address whatever is holding you back; whether it’s a lack of role models, an unwelcoming and exclusive culture in the industry, unhelpful policies, limited exposure to technology, or simply not realizing what a great fit you might be. We know there are some things we can’t change, but we are committed to accomplishing what we can. Let’s start with access to an unsurpassed education, and build a community together. We’ll help you form a support network, connect you with mentors, and stand with you as you launch and grow your career.
Lovisa Svallingson, a beloved member of the Turing Community was tragically lost in an accident in 2021. Through combined efforts with her family and network of friends, Turing is now offering a scholarship in her name in remembrance of her and her amazing work.
This scholarship will be awarded annually to a Turing student to continue the work at the intersection of tech, environmental sustainability, and women empowerment, that Lovisa was so passionately committed to. This is a $10,000 scholarship awarded to a single student.
This scholarship will also be awarded based on a demonstrated financial need.
