Thank you to Microsoft Philanthropies for supporting scholarships.

Thanks to generous support from Microsoft Philanthropies, we’re excited to offer scholarships to our Nonprofit Technology Professional Certificate, an in-depth educational program that recognizes the skills of nonprofit professionals who use technology in their work.

These scholarships are part of NTEN’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and are intended for communities for whom access to this program may be difficult due to budget constraints. Please note that at this time, scholarships are only available for people who are currently employed by a nonprofit organization.

Scholarship recipients can begin registering for elective courses immediately with the 10-Week Core running from September 24 to December 10.
