Google Africa Scholarship Program

The Google Africa Scholarship Program 2018

Google announced a partnership with Andela and Udacity to provide 15,000 “single-course” scholarships and 500 nano degree scholarships to aspiring developers in Africa through the Google Africa Scholarship Program.

The program takes place 100% online. You can work from wherever you want to, as long as you have a working internet connection.


  • Learn valuable skills to launch or advance your career as a mobile or web developer
  • Master world-class curriculum developed with experts from Google and Udacity
  • Join a rapidly growing community of mobile and web developers

How it works

To apply for the Google Africa Scholarship Program, you need to be at least 18 years old and live in a country in Africa. When applying, you will choose between learning web development or Android development. From there, once you’re accepted, they’ll place you in one of two tracks (beginner or intermediate), depending on your existing skills and experience.

After that, the learning begins! Some scholarship recipients may be able to participate in an Andela Learning Community with Google’s partners from Andela.

Finally, top students from each track will earn full scholarships to one of our Android or Web Development Nanodegree programs

How to Apply

The application is straightforward and should take 10-15 minutes. There is a single application for all, whether you’re interested in Mobile or Web, and whether you’re a beginner or already have experience.

Answer what you can, to the best of your ability, and they’ll do the rest!
