Silicon Valley and Puerto Rico Female Fellowships Still Up For Grabs - Applications End Tonight

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-06-01

Last month we announced that we were indefinitely extending our Female Founder Fellowship program, in an ongoing effort to grow the number of female technology founders by providing free Course Fees to our best female applicants.

We recently awarded Fellowships to the best female applicants in 10 cities, including Tel Aviv, Santiago, Jakarta, Vietnam, Singapore, Madrid, Medellin, Bogota, Chicago, and Denver.

However, there are still two Fellowships up for grabs for our Summer program in Silicon Valley and Puerto Rico - but the Application Deadline is this Sunday, June 3rd; 

 
The Institute will subsidize the Course Fee for the most extraordinary female applicant for all upcoming Founder Institute semesters.  Any female who applies to one of these semesters (including those who have applied already) is automatically eligible.
 
This is not about providing special treatment - the majority of applicants to the Founder Institute do not get accepted, and this will always be the case because we employ a quantitative Predictive Admissions Test in our application process. This test was specifically designed, and is constantly calibrated, to identify entrepreneurial personality traits and remove all forms of subjective bias. The program is simply designed to grow the number of female applicants, which will ultimately lead to more female-founded technology companies across the globe.
