The SuperHi LGBTQIA+ Summer Scholarship
We make online courses and tools that make learning new skills easier — that includes making learning accessible to all.
SuperHi’s mission is to give creative and curious people the tools, techniques and confidence to bring ideas and work to life online.
We think that education should be accessible to all, whatever your financial situation; that we won’t know how good technology can be until everyone has equal chance to participate; that diverse backgrounds and experiences working in the creative industries is crucial; that complementing whatever you're good at with new skills is a clear advantage; and that learning should be practical, fun as well as stress-free for the best chance to make it stick.
We think that we should all work harder to ensure skillsets are distributed representatively in the creative industries. We're proud and humbled that our current students are 47% female, 2% non-binary and 51% male from a wide range of backgrounds and over eighty countries.
What you can win
Three winners will receive the grand prize of all our courses — that's right, every single one of our 15 courses currently available.
We're also giving away ten copies of our coding book for beginners, Learn To Code Now, which comes with access to our online code editor designed to help new coders learn more easily.
Who can apply?
This scholarship is for those who identify as LGBTQIA+.
Our courses are designed for those who work, or want to work, in the creative industries but built so anyone can learn. You don't need to be a designer, just someone who enjoys making things.
Emerging creatives, students, and those looking to make a career change or add a new skill to complement what they're already great at are encouraged to apply. If this doesn't directly apply to you and you still would like to apply, please do.
SuperHi is a global community with students over 80 countries, so this scholarship is open to international applicants.
If you’re already on one of our courses or about to start you can still apply. If your scholarship application is successful we’ll refund you what you’ve paid relative to the prize.
What you’ll need for our courses
They're all online, flexible and go-at-your-own-pace so all you need is a computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with the latest version of Chrome installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!
Deadline: August 18th 2019, 11:59pm Eastern Time
Winners will be selected by a blind review process — we remove all personal and identifying information from your application, and our independent judge will pick the winners. Make your application good!

You don’t have to learn alone
Learning any new skill is difficult, especially if you’re trying to do it by yourself. As part of a course, you’ll have access to the help you need if you get stuck and reviews to help your code get stronger
It can be hard to learn best practices through Googling alone so every SuperHi project has a strong foundation that makes it easier to build upon. We also review your work to make sure everything is clean, maintainable and on track - no spaghetti code allowed!
We’re here to support you if you get stuck, either with any SuperHi project, any homework or even one of your very own self-initiated projects.
- Every video page has a Question and Answer to receive in-context answers quickly
- Get live Slack support — our team is distributed worldwide and we cover most hours of the day!
- Get 1-to-1 sessions via Skype or Hangouts with one of our expert instructors
- Request your own video tutorial – most of our videos are student requests
- Or drop us an email whenever you like!
At your pace, not ours
Our courses are designed with flexibility in mind. We know that people get busy with work or freelance, so if you don't finish a course in exactly the amount of time, that's cool, it will still be there for you. We never turn off access.
Dip in and out, or revisit them whenever you're ready to start learning again.
ApplyApplications will close on August 18th 2019 at 11:59pm Eastern Time. Winners will be selected by a blind review process, removing all personal and identifying information.

We publish free video tutorials every week, explaining the best techniques in digital design.
Mouse move glitch collage using HTML canvas
As seen on the Azab site (or when you win at Solitaire), it's fairly straight forward to create a glitch-style collage that draws the image again and again whenever your user moves their mouse. In this video, we build up how to make a site that has a HTML canvas slideshow that reveals each image on click and has a tweening movement.
How to turn any web page into an app with Nativefier
Sometimes it'd be nice to have an app instead of a browser tab for a web service, but that site may not have a native Mac or Windows app. Using Nativefier command line tool, we can make our own app in just a few minutes!
