DEIJ scholarship program

At O’Reilly, we believe that true innovation depends on hearing from, and listening to, people with a variety of perspectives. We want our whole community—including our online learning platform and the technology organizations who engage with it—to recognize, include, and encourage people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientations, and professional roles.

To help members of groups underrepresented in technology develop and sharpen the skills needed to break through barriers within the field, we’re offering 500 annual scholarships giving recipients full access to the O’Reilly learning platform. Learn more about how O’Reilly is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice here.

Who it’s for

The O’Reilly DEIJ scholarship is for those from groups underrepresented in tech who want to kick-start their career, upskill, or develop new skills. These groups include women, the Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian communities, the LGBTQIA+ community, veterans, and people with a physical or neurological disability.

How to apply

To be considered for an O’Reilly DEIJ scholarship, please submit your application on or before April 1, 2024. You’ll be notified of your acceptance status by June 15, 2024.
