Female Founder Fellowship

The Female Founder Fellowship is awarded to the most extraordinary female applicant for each semester, giving them the opportunity to participate in the Founder Institute for free. The recipient will be recognized as a female with the utmost potential to become a successful technology entrepreneur.

The Founder Institute is committed to narrowing the gender gap in high tech startups. When we announced the Female Founder Fellowship program in 2011, only 16% of Founder Institute companies were founded by females. Since then, the results of this program have been astounding, as our overall number of female-founded companies has more than doubled, to a total of approximately 33%. This is more than twice as high as most other startup programs. Learn more about the Female Founder Fellowship program here

Grant: The Female Founder Fellowship is awarded to the most extraordinary female applicant for each semester. The recipient will be awarded and notified within 5 days after the Early Admissions Deadline, and they will receive a full refund on their Course Fee within 1 week of the program start date. All applicants will be notified via email when the Fellowships are awarded.

GigaOm Reports a Quarter of @Udemy Course Instructors Earn $10k Annually

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-12-03

In conjunction with the burgeoning online education marketplace, Silicon Valley graduate, Udemy continues to expand. According to a recent announcement, however, they’re not the only ones raking in the benefits. A few months back the company said its top earning instructors were making six-figures simply by teaching courses on the online education site. As it turns out, a good number of their peers are pulling in impressive numbers as well.

The company recently told GigaOm that a quarter of its approved instructors will close out the year with at least $10,000 in income from courses purchased on its site. According to the article, “The company declined to share the total number of instructors offering classes on Udemy but said the figure has climbed 300 percent in the last year. About 60 percent of all instructors on the site are “approved,” meaning their courses meet a checklist of standards and can be searchable by students online. The site has attracted about 400,000 registered students, which is about a 520 percent increase from last year.”

While the most profitable courses tend to fall in the technical realm (Microsoft Excel or Python), instructors teaching courses on topics like yoga and cooking can make their fare share as well. Photographer David Nightingale, for example, has made $31,000 in just four months with his “art of black and white photography” course, suggesting that if a Udemy course is made well, it can attract a large audience.
