Fellowship Opportunity for Middlebury College Students with The Horizons School of Technology

The Horizons Fellowship

The Horizons School of Technology supports 55 outstanding university students in their pursuit to become leaders in technology. Their tuition-free programs provide immersive software engineering and web/mobile development courses geared towards high-achieving college students. Students need not have a computer science background! Their curriculum, developed by ex-Salesforce and Optimizely engineers alongside PhD candidates in computer science, is designed to teach students how to build web, mobile, and desktop applications.

Horizons students have gone on to receive offers from firms such as Google, Slack, Yelp, Amazon, BCG, Visa, J.P. Morgan, and more

The Horizons Speaker Series brings in successful founders, investors, and technologists into the classroom. Students will hear from some of the industry’s foremost experts. They have had some amazing speakers like the founders of Zenefits, Coinbase, Digital Ocean, Andela, X.ai, Shapeways, and more.

Past Horizonites have come from a variety of schools and backgrounds. Students have hailed from Harvard, Princeton, Yale, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, Northwestern, Brown, Michigan and more. We’ve welcomed National Math Olympiad winners, USA Computing Olympiad participants, renowned college entrepreneurs, students with perfect SAT/ACT scores, talented designers, photographers, and more as part of our previous cohort.
