for English or Japanese Foundations

What is The Butterfly Scholarship?

The Butterfly Fund Scholarship seeks to diversity Japan's tech community by creating opportunities for single mothers to attend our software engineering programs. In Japan, single mothers are at a poverty rate of 56%, yet 85% participate in the labor force. These stats are highest among Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. The Butterfly Fund Scholarship is governed entirely by the third-party committee of volunteers. Code Chrysalis's administrative costs are zero.
