    • Code for Good - HBCU & HSI Edition

      Code for Good hackathons gives you the chance to use your tech skills to help nonprofits. This spring, JPMorgan Chase is hosting a hackathon that focuses on welcoming students who attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) or Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). Our goal is to welcome underrepresented communities in the technology industry and give students a chance to use their coding skills for good. Students will also get the opportunity to see what a career in financial services technology is like!


      What You Can Expect:

      Over the course of 24 hours, you and your team will develop a technology solution for a nonprofit organization. You’ll get to work side by side with our expert JPMorgan Chase technologists, learning from their experience as you creatively solve real world problems faced by social organizations. You are encouraged to come up with cutting-edge ideas that could make a difference to the people who need it most.

      Coders will need to bring their own laptops to the event. Travel expenses will be covered by JPMorgan Chase, though conditions will apply. Further details and instructions will be provided to those invited to participate.

      If you are invited to Code for Good - HBCU & HSI Edition and attend the in-person event, you will have an opportunity to apply and interview for 2021 Summer Intern or Full-time Software Engineer Program opportunities. Your participation in Code for Good - HBCU & HSI Edition may also be considered as part of your application should you choose to apply to any of our 2021 programs.
