The scholarship initiative focuses on two cutting-edge domains that are reshaping the technological landscape. With AI at the forefront of innovation and no-code software development democratizing access to tech skills, SkillHat’s program aims to equip women and Black professionals with the knowledge and tools to thrive in these transformative fields.


Women & Black professionals are under-represented in tech. Women represent only 25% of the tech workers globally, while black professionals represent 2 – 7% of the tech work force in Canada and USA respectively.


As SkillHat approaches this significant milestone, the organization reaffirms its dedication to driving diversity, inclusivity, and innovation in the tech industry. The “EmpowerAI” scholarship stands as a testament to SkillHat’s unwavering mission to create opportunities and pathways for underrepresented individuals to excel in high-growth sectors.


The education program is a 4 month full-time instructor-led bootcamp, held remotely. The program will be split into 2 parts.


A. Bootcamp training
B. Project work with a Tech Startup


The bootcamp delivered in collaboration with long-term SkillHat partner Dev & Design will teach learners how to build software without writing code, using no-code technologies like Bubble. It also instills the basics of AI integration. Trainees will be trained to integrate their apps with Chat GPT, and other A.I APIs. 


Trainees will deliver real world projects in the SkillHat Accelerator. They will be matched with a cross-functional product team of PMs, designers and Founders to launch an app solving a real-world problem.

At the end of the 4 month program, successful participants will be equipped to earn a high income as software developers, or start freelance businesses. Beneficiaries of this scholarship are required to legally reside in USA or Canada.



SkillHat provides a job guarantee for this program, facilitating post-program success through agency staffing services, career coaching, community and mentorship.


SkillHat will continue to build the future of talent in no-code software development & AI. Too many people are unaware of the life-changing possibilities that new technology has created for motivated & creative professionals,”Mo’ Ekujumi, Founder and CEO of SkillHat. 


“We recognize the vital importance of diversity in driving innovation, and through the ‘EmpowerAI’ scholarship, we aim to create opportunities and pathways for underrepresented individuals to excel in high-growth sectors.”


SkillHat invites collaboration and support from industry leaders, and partners who share the vision of a more diverse and inclusive tech landscape. Willing sponsors, and partners with access to the target group are encouraged to connect.


By joining hands with SkillHat, stakeholders can play an active role in fostering talent, innovation, and sustainable progress.
