Ahead of its f8 developers conference kicking off Tuesday, Facebook donated $250,000 toward scholarships for students from underrepresented communities.

The donation will be used to cover full tuition for 20 students who are women and/or underrepresented minority students to join the San Francisco program of Dev Bootcamp, which teaches coding.

Applications for the scholarships open Monday, and close May 2. The program is open to California residents who identify as a member of a minority group underrepresented in tech (Black/African American, Chicano/Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander) and/or a women.
