All interested persons can now apply for a Google Micro Grant.
Google’s objective is that all students should have the opportunity to learn and get excited about computer science (CS).
Africa Code Week
To spread the excitement about Africa Code Week (ACW), Google has funded the Cape Town Science Centre to offer small grants (up to $1000 USD) to organizations and grassroots groups who want to run initiatives to give more kids (aged 5-18), especially those who may not have access to many CS learning opportunities, a chance to engage with computer science.
Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis, and must be received by midnight (SAST) September 2nd 2016.
1. Must be a registered not-for-profit or grassroot group (e.g. a university student association) registered within a school/university.
2. Event must take place during or around Africa Code Week (October 15-23, 2016)
3. Initiative must target students who are new to computer science, and preference will be given to initiatives that consist of at least 1 hour of hands-on computer science learning activity.
4. Funding cannot be used solely for hardware acquisition or for creating new content. We encourage organizations to leverage existing resources such as cs-first.com and csunplugged.org, where possible.
5. Preference will be given to projects that reach 100+ students.
6. Recipients agree to share follow up outcome metrics information with the Africa Code Week team, who may also share the outcome with Google.
