Continuing her passion for all things tech, Kloss announced today that she's officially launching a scholarship to teach young girls how to code.

The new Kode With Karlie Scholarship will kick off this summer, and give 20 high school girls the chance to learn how to code at the Flatiron School.

Participants will score free tuition to Flatiron Pre-College Academy's Introduction to Software Engineering course — a two-week, full-time course where they'll learn how to create an app. Ten of the spots will be at the NYC campus, and the other ten will be at different locations around the country.

I'm so excited to partner with the Flatiron School to launch the Kode With Karlie scholarship and give twenty young women a chance to spend two weeks with other coding students learning and having fun this summer! If one girl leaves the course inspired to keep learning code, I'll be happy!
It doesn't matter if you're a fashion model or high school student, understanding code is so important because it's the language that runs our world! Young women are shaping the world we live in and code is a tool for us to continue to have a big voice and say in our future.

All we have to say is: Y-E-S. 🙌 💪 👊
