The nHub is giving out scholarships to empower Women in Tech

by | Jan 22, 2016

Countless news publications and journalists have reported that the technology industry by a wide margin is a male dominated industry. In Nigeria, most women are faced with different challenges and gender inequality is highly rated as one of them.

Franklin, Founder of Carlin Solutions said, ‘its women using high-tech to make sure we have equal rights, making sure that as moms, as daughters, as granddaughters, as nieces, as aunts, we are empowering ourselves in the workplace, at home, in our lives in general and we do that through technology.’

It is with this view that the biggest technology hub in Northern Nigeria, nHub is working to provide initiatives that will close that gap first of all by giving out scholarships to women at its academy to enhance their knowledge and skills in this ever-growing technology world. These skills will be paramount for the women to meet-up or be able to compete effectively with peers around the world.

Beneficiaries will be taught highly sought-after programming skills offered by nHub such as content management programming (WordPress), LAMP Stack, Django Framework, app development (Android/iOS), and others. The programme will run for 3 months and will take place at nHub, located in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria.

Woman in tech? Do the prospects interest you? You can apply now. There are only 10 scholarships slots available so you want to apply sooner than later.
