The Beacon Fellowship - Computer Science (CS) Track
Note: The Beacon CS track is separate from the core Beacon Fellowship, which focuses primarily on consulting.
What is the CS track?
The Computer Science track is a pilot program that provides a tailored placement working on a programming project with a startup or growth-stage client for 4 weeks in Madrid for business-minded computer science majors. Fellows will work under the guidance of a programming professional whose sole job is to help them apply their programming knowledge to business applications and ensure they learn as much as possible.
Fellows must be well-versed in one common programming language to apply. We work hard to provide relevant and challenging projects for each Fellows’ level and area of expertise. By the end of the Beacon CS track program, Fellows will have tangible and unique experience that will set their resume apart from others in the field. In their free time, Fellows will be able to explore the culture and cuisine of beautiful Madrid, Spain.
How much does it cost?
The program fee of $3999 covers housing, excursions, local transportation, travel health insurance, and some meals.
When is each 4-week program?
