Launch Academy Payment

HackCville’s Launch summer program offers a unique combination of skill building, networking, and hands-on projects unlike any summer program available. Not to mention, students are paid $1750. 

Pay is increased to adjust for cost of living in some cities, dependent on internship placement location.

Here's how Launch stacks up compared to other summer options.

"Launch is unlike any summer most students will ever experience because not only are you rapidly learning and growing, you're also working in a community who are just as dedicated and driven as you, so together you push yourselves to learn cooler skills and trade different tips, all while having a good time with one another."

What's Included

  • Full access to the 13-week program curriculum, mentorship, and resources
  • 24/7 access to HackCville's two workspaces on Elliewood Avenue for the duration of the program
  • Upon completion of the program, you'll be granted HackCville membership, giving you advance access to other HackCville programs and exclusive job opportunities
  • There are no additional textbooks to buy or fees to pay after the cost of tuition. You won't have to pay for summer housing either if you already have an apartment in Charlottesville.

How can we do this?

Our company partners make a payment to HackCville to fund our students' education. We pay students their $1750+ stipend out of this payment. If you have further questions, send us an email at
