Etsy Grants for attending Hacker School this summer in NYC!

In conjunction with Hacker School, Etsy has announced a new scholarship and sponsorship program for women in technology: they’ll be hosting the summer 2012 session of Hacker School in the Etsy headquarters, and providing ten Etsy Hacker Grants of $5,000 each — a total of $50,000 — to women who want to join but need financial support to do so.  The goal is to bring 20 women to New York to participate.
Hacker School is a New York-based project described by its founders (David Albert, Nicholas Bergson-Shilcock, and Sonali Sridhar) as “a three-month, immersive school for becoming a better programmer. It’s like a writers’ retreat for hackers.”
