Press release:
Durham, NC – January 31, 2019

Rewriting the Code, a national non-profit organization dedicated to empowering college women with a passion for technology, has grown to an online community of more than 2,000 members. The community is free to join and open to all college women pursuing technology-related majors such as engineering, computer science, statistics, and math. Community members have the opportunity to connect in-person at select universities, regions, and summer hub cities, and to attend in-person or on-line career, personal and tech learning opportunities.

“I have found a community here that will be with me for the rest of my life.” [Allison C., Rewriting the Code Member]

As part of the Rewriting the Code community, women also have an opportunity to become Rewriting the Code Fellows, which gives them access to further benefits. There is a separate application process and limited openings for the Fellows program, but it is also free of charge to the students.

“Participating in Rewriting the Code was the best decision I could have made because I met an incredible community of women who are smart, talented, and supportive.” [Jennie C., Rewriting the Code Member]

Community membership is open all year, and can be accessed through the Rewriting the Code website. Fellowship Applications for the 2020 class of Fellows will open on April 1, 2019.
