Your Future Is Not on Pause: How Thinkful Is Helping You During COVID-19

The last few weeks have fundamentally changed the way the world works. Now more than ever, ambitious and capable people are uncertain about their futures. Many are in search of work that is stable and meaningful.

To fill that gap, Thinkful is announcing over $1.5M in scholarships and a range of new programs to help those impacted get back on their feet and back to work.

Thinkful has spent eight years helping thousands of students build high-growth careers. All of their programs are 100% online, can be completed in a full-time or part-time format, and include one-on-one mentorship from an industry expert, as well as career coaching through the full job search.

Their commitment to students is why Thinkful is now offering support to those adversely impacted by the effects of the current global crisis. Affected individuals in the United States who can provide the following are welcome to apply:

  • Documentation proving job loss
  • Proof of unemployment filing after February 25th, 2020
  • Proof of hour reduction by more than 30% as a result of COVID-19

Start today and get 30 days free

For those whose livelihood has been affected by COVID-19, Thinkful is offering the first 30 days of their Flexible courses for free. Students will have access to a mentor and the full range of student support services. If they choose to continue once the 30 days are up, students will be fully supported for the length of the program with the addition of personalized career coaches and success managers. Additionally and for the first time ever, students enrolled in a flexible course will have the opportunity to defer 100% of their tuition costs until they land a job making over $40,000 a year. Visit, to view the courses, choose the right option, and get access to the curriculum right away.

Reduced tuition when studying full-time

Those looking to commit to a full-time program can now launch a new career at a significantly reduced rate. Thinkful is offering $4,000 off the total cost of their Immersion programs in Engineering, UX/UI Design, Data Analytics and Data Science. These courses require a full-time commitment, but launch careers faster than flexible courses.

After enrolling, students will be matched with a personal mentor and be guided every step of the way with student support services. In addition to exceptional mentorship, Thinkful is also making their ISA and Living Stipend options available in twice as many cities to help cover student costs. These offers combine to relieve all upfront costs, and even add $1500 a month to help with living expenses. Learn more about Thinkful’s Living Stipend here.

All programs come with access to a dedicated mentor for the entire program, as well as career coaches focused solely on helping graduates become job ready. All work and communication takes place completely online, and study can happen anywhere with a laptop and a secure wifi connection. In addition to industry-relevant training, Thinkful also helps students with networking, portfolio building, and interview practice. Graduates from Thinkful work for some of the biggest tech companies in America, and as their recent long-terms outcomes survey showed, graduates are promoted and earning significant raises in the years that follow.

The future of work is changing before our eyes, but there are still plenty of opportunities to thrive. Check out, or reach out to Take your place in the world’s next workforce.
