A few months ago, I had coffee with a Thinkful student, Matt. He was enrolled in Thinkful’s Data Science Flex program and, like most of his classmates, was juggling a full-time job while going to school. Matt described his demanding day—waking up at 6:45AM to study, squeezing in some reading on his metro ride to work, rushing home to meet with his mentor, and then spending a few more hours on his capstone project before bed. I was beyond impressed with Matt’s tenacity and organizational skills, and one thing was clear: his life was as exhausting as it was exhilarating.
Thanks to Thinkful’s newly launched Data Science Immersion program, aspiring data scientists like Matt no longer have to work and study at the same time. This full-time program allows students in select markets to apply for Living Stipends to cover expenses like rent and groceries throughout the five month duration of the program. Additionally, for the first time, Thinkful’s Income Share Agreement is available to data science students. That means that students in the Data Science Immersion program can choose to pay no tuition until they’re hired.
Here are a few more highlights of the program:
As a part-time student myself, I find it easy to connect to Matt’s story. Like Matt, I’ve had those late nights followed by early mornings. I’ve juggled work, school, and everything else life throws at you. And also like Matt, I couldn’t be happier that others can find more balance in their lives thanks to programs like Data Science Immersion.
