Pérez Art Museum Miami and Ironhack to Award a Design and Travel Fellowship to South Florida Residents

PAMM is Teaming up with Ironhack, Florida’s #1 Rated Coding and Design School, to Offer a Fully-paid International Trip and 50% Scholarship

MIAMI, FL – September 28, 2018 – For the first time, an art museum is teaming up with a coding school. Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is joining forces with Ironhack, Florida’s #1 student-rated coding and design bootcamp, to award a travel and design fellowship that will send one lucky recipient to one of Ironhack’s eight international locations (Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Mexico City, or Sao Paulo.) The recipient will also receive a 50% covered tuition to Ironhack’s UX/UI Design bootcamp, so they can learn new skills that marry technology, art, and psychology. One fellowship will be given out to someone to enroll in one of Ironhack’s UX/UI Design bootcamps this year.

“We see art as an incentive for genuine human interaction, communication, and exchange. As technology continues to evolve and disrupt industries, we are attracted to Ironhack’s global UX/UI program for the same reasons we believe in art,” said PAMM Director of Corporate Relations Jaime Bayo, MPA. “Design combined with ideas has power and is a tool that people can use to turn ideas into reality. We’re happy to make this learning opportunity accessible to our community members who are looking to launch careers in design.”

Rated the #2 coding school in the world this year by national rating site CourseReport, Ironhack is located in the heart of downtown Brickell at Building.co, Miami's shared workspace for tech companies and startups. The school, which opened in Miami more than three years ago has an 83% job placement rate within three months for its full time and part-time graduates.

“It’s awesome to partner with PAMM for the first time and open up our global technology programs to more than the usual suspects,” said Ironhack Miami General Manager Alia Poonawala. “In a period of accelerating change, we really value the people who come to Ironhack from differing backgrounds like architecture, hospitality, teaching, arts, customer service, etc. They tend to bring a wealth of special and distinct experiences that inform their design processes and the companies they ultimately work with.”
