Application is open for the Udacity Google Africa Scholarship Program 2018, a web and android scholarship for residents of African countries. When applying, you will choose between learning web development or Android development. From there, once you’re accepted, you will be placed 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 partners from Andela. Finally, top students from each track will earn full scholarships to one of Google’s Android or Web Development Nanodegree programs.
The program takes place 100% online. You can work from wherever you want to, as long as you have access to a working internet connection. Depending on where you live, you may also choose to participate in optional in-person meet-ups with your scholarship classmates.
