What are the eligibility requirements? Is the program open to high school students or non-traditional students or professionals?

In order to be eligible to participate, you must meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Be at least 18 years of age

  • Reside in a country not embargoed by the United States

  • Able to commit at least 30 hours per week to this program

  • Know how to code in at least one language

  • Proficient English speaker

  • Have access to a video call quality Internet connection. You can use a speed test tool (e.g., Fast.com) to check your internet connection. We recommend a minimum of 30 Mbps; 50 Mbps is better.

Beyond that, the MLH Fellowship is open to all students, regardless of where they live and what type of institution they attend. We are also opening slots to a limited number of non-student professionals.
