Google on Wednesday 22 April announced the third round of its Develop Scholarship, as part of the company’s commitment to “create skills and opportunities for Africa”.

Google just launched another round of the Google Africa Developer Scholarship program in partnership with Pluralsight and Andela.

John Kimani explained that it builds on Google Africa’s five-year commitment to “help bridge the developer skills and opportunities gap in Africa”.

This program is aimed at helping aspiring developers to kick start their journey in tech and existing developers to further advance their knowledge and skills in Android, Google Cloud, and Mobile Web technologies.

Google will be offering 30,000 additional scholarship opportunities and 1,000 grants for the Google Associate Android Developer and Associate Cloud Engineer certifications. 

Benefiting communities in Africa

Global Head, Developer Training Programs William Florance also adds that “Africa is on track to have the largest working-age population of 1.1 billion by 2034”.

“Google’s certifications are developed around a job-task analysis and test learners for skills employers expect developers to have in these domains.”

This connection to communities focused on Google technologies will provide access to additional skills and help inspire the next generation of software developers in Africa.
