ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP

Now accepting applicants from New York State, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Newark

The Karim Kharbouch Coding Fellowship (KKCF) was co-founded in 2019 with Bronx Hip Hop artist French Montana to provide code and design curriculum to immigrant high school youth in the Bronx.

Through a 12-month fellowship program, Fellows will complete 80 hours of summer curriculum to prepare them for college, the future of work, and STEM careers, while participating in monthly career workshops throughout the academic year. During the summer months, Fellows will participate in six weeks of summer instruction, then recieve monthly career coaching session and workshops. 

Fellows will use industry-standard technologies to learn how to create a brand, understand selling, creating a proper wireframe, basic HTML & CSS coding, and more. The Fellowship will conclude with an internship the following summer.
