The Seattle-based marketing technology platform, TUNE, has opened applications for free housing for female undergraduate students seeking degrees in computer science or technology. They currently have 6 openings and the deadline to apply is April 1.
The TUNE house is in its third year and offers eight women free housing, laptops and weekly grocery delivery from Amazon Fresh. The company also provides mentorships with the women living in the house.
The house is more than 3,000 square feet with eight bedrooms and three kitchens near the University of Washington Seattle campus.
A TUNE spokesperson says the company is trying to challenges at the systemic problems women see in the tech industry.
