About the Google Africa Developer Scholarship – The Google Africa Developer Scholarship is a scholarship program established by Google in partnership with other partners to provide opportunities for Africans to gain vital digital skills and launch their careers in technology. Typically, this program focuses on online and mobile development, with a particular emphasis on Google technologies.
As an online learning initiative sponsored by Google in partnership with multiple partner organizations and online learning platforms, the Google Africa Developer Scholarship program does not normally have a specific host university in the traditional sense.
