Apply now for Code Week 2019 grants from Google
Publication date: March 13, 2019
Technological change and shifts in job roles are transforming the demand for skills at a faster pace than ever before. More than 65% of students will work in jobs that don’t even exist today.
As part of Google’s commitment to help 1 million Europeans find a job or grow their business by 2020, Google wants to prepare today’s students for that future by getting them excited about where computer science can take them. This year, Google is happy to be involved in Europe Code Week again to support efforts that inspire students to use technology and advance their computational thinking skills, with a focus on girls and others currently underrepresented in the field.
This program is open to not-for-profit organizations and schools only.
