Imagine if you could pursue an education and land a good-paying job without forking over a dime — or taking out a student loan. In fact, take it a step further and picture getting paid to study.

You can make that dream a reality with Revature, a technology talent development company based in Virginia.

Revature is recruiting students at several U.S. colleges to participate in its free 12-week computer programming boot camp. According to Money, the 40-hour-per-week course teaches students in-demand skills such as Java and data management.

Not only is the coding school free, but Money says Revature also pays its students minimum wage to attend. The tech company also provides students with free housing, according to WindowsITPro.com.

In exchange for the free course, Revature requires its graduates to commit to work for the company for two years, Money says. It reports that Revature pays its grads $50,000 to $65,000 a year to work as contract software engineers for companies that include banks, health insurers, retailers and more. Those client companies help cover the cost of Revature’s free computer coding courses.

According to WindowsITPro.com.

The students gain the real-world development skills they need and a guaranteed job, while the client company gets a trained contractor who can help get projects completed in jobs they couldn’t fill on their own.

Revature says additional college campuses could be added in the future.

Joe Vacca, chief marketing officer for Revature, tells Money that the company doesn’t anticipate any big issues getting students to commit to work for them for two years, nor does it expect difficulties keeping them employed.

“Because of the pressure on immigration, more companies are looking at how to hire U.S. citizens,” explains Vacca.

It’s estimated that nearly half of the jobs offered in the top income quartile in the United States — meaning they pay $57,000 annually or more — require computer coding knowledge or skill. For more on this, check out “Looking for a High-Paying Job? You’d Better Learn This Skill.”
