We’ve had over a thousand applicants for our program and we only select 30 women per class who exemplify these three traits

Versatile

From our experience, what separates great data scientists from the good ones are their abilities to communicate effectively in different situations. The ones who find and tell the stories in the data that non-technologists will find intriguing.

Ambitious

FTW Foundation is building a movement.

Regardless of background and where they decide to work after the program, FTW Scholars’ values are unwavering in their wanting to help the Philippines and solving some of society's biggest problems.

Unstoppable.

Some call it grit, some call it resilience. It's hard to learn something new. Most of us hadn't written any lines of code before we started the program so to get through this program, scholars need to be resourceful, determined, and focused on a growth-mindset.

 

... More than the tech skills, FTW taught me to believe in my abilities, to be confident because I can.
— Mikha Jane Mata, FTW Scholar, Data Scientist at Accenture
