Google Africa Developer Scholarship 2021

This program aims to engage with existing and aspiring developers to help them build the skills they need to get a job in tech after the program is over. The Google Africa Developer Scholarship (GADS) program gives participants free access to select courses, projects, embedded labs (powered by Qwiklabs) and skill assessments; plus support from the Google Developer community. The resources available in this program will help developers build the skills necessary to get their Google certification. Previous participants have gone on to build impactful projects for their communities, make incredible steps in their career journeys, and even become Google-certified developers and engineers.


The tracks available this year include Android, Mobile Web Specialist, and Google Cloud. This year, we’re also excited to announce that Android learners will also get access to Kotlin courses. Kotlin has helped development teams increase productivity, improve app quality, and increase developer satisfaction and this will be a great opportunity for developers to level up their skills.

Acceptance into this program is limited, so get started today to ensure you don’t miss out! Applicants will be prioritized for advancement based on the amount of Pluralsight content consumed and other target demographics.
