Hold on to your Karlie’s Kookies. Model Karlie Kloss announced her Kode With Karlie Scholarship, offering 20 young women between the ages of 13 and 18 the chance to take a two-week coding course at the Flatiron School this summer — Kloss herself took the same course. The application, a 60-second video explaining why you want to learn to code, is due May 1. Here’s Kloss’s announcement via Instagram:

It’s wonderful that another famous woman is lending her support to inspire more girls to code. And the scholarship is actually in line with Kloss’s personal pursuits: She has a vested interest in coding and technology (she one day hopes to deliver Karlie’s Kookies by drone), she demonstrated a real commitment to her own education, and she’s already nailed her Tech Visionary uniform.
