Who Should Apply

My Digital Future is for anyone with drive, determination and the desire to do something more.

  • Do you have an idea for a digital product or service that you want  to bring to life?
  • Do you know you have potential to do far more than your current job asks of you?
  • Do you want to learn digital skills to expand your professional and personal horizons?
  • Are you are worried that you will be left behind in the digital age?

The My Digital Future Fellowship gives you the opportunity to learn valuable digital skills, regardless of your educational or professional background.

With personal support from instructors and hands-on project work, you’ll gain the foundational digital literacy you need to improve your professional opportunities and take on new challenges.

This is your chance to create your digital future.

The Learning Path

As My Digital Future Fellow, you’ll have access to a learning path of six online courses designed to give you applied digital and web development skills – no matter your educational or professional background.

The courses will take you on a path from digital literacy, to competency, to mastery.

Although we highly recommend that Fellows complete the entire learning path, Fellows are not obliged to complete all six courses or the capstone project.
