2019 Google Africa Certification Scholarships


Google, in partnership with online education company Pluralsight and software start-up Andela, is calling on aspiring Android developers to apply for the 2019 Google Africa Certifications Scholarships.

No deadline has been specified, but Pluralsight urges interested candidates to "hurry up and apply" as acceptance into this programme is limited.
