From Educator Zac Gordon

The JavaScript for WordPress Scholarship

The JS for WP Scholarship

The JavaScript for WordPress Master Course was created to help address the homework assignment from WordPress Co-Founder, Matt Mullenweg, to "Learn JavaScript Deeply."

Learning JavaScript Deeply, is not a short term or necessarily easy goal, but it brings great rewards.  Work involving JavaScript is some of the most in demand, well paying and available work now and in the coming years.  WordPress as a platform for working with JavaScript is also growing thanks to its REST API.

​In addition to requiring effort to Learn JavaScript Deeply, it can be costly if you want to learn in a structured environment from a well developed curriculum.  This scholarship was created to help people who have a passion to learn JavaScript driven WordPress development, but possibly not the financial resources to do it in this way.

The Scholarship Details

Three Scholarships will be awarded during each 2017 Open Enrollment period for the JavaScript for WordPress Master Course.  Each Scholarship Recipient receives the following:

​> Lifetime Access to The JS for WP Master Course [$697]

​> Monthly Mentoring Sessions with Zac Gordon [$4200/year]

> ​Networking Connections in the WP Community [Priceless]

One Recipient will also get Flight, Lodging and Entry to WordCamp US and the Contributor Day from Dec. 1st - 3rd, 2017 in Nashville, TN.
