A few weeks ago we shared with you the Google Career Certificate Scholarship program. We are excited to share that PWNC Foundation, Inc our nonprofit has gifted some scholarships already. We are honored to collaborate with Grow with Google on this 100-million-dollar project to make a change in the economy and people's lives.
A reminder of what the program is all about. The Google Career Certificate program is a program that offers awardees the opportunity to complete a six-month program with no experience in the technology fields listed above. Once the program is completed, graduates will have the opportunity to apply to Google or one of their 150 businesses consortium for possible employment.
The world of technology is huge, not only are private sectors looking for these people but so is the Federal Government if you are considering doing any government contracting. For 10 hours a week over a 6-month period for a program that is completely online, I would say it's worth it and so would your finances one day!
This program is focusing more on the economically disadvantaged and low-income communities at this time, however, we are not discouraging anyone from applying especially since we have scholarships available. We will be doing a press release soon, so if you are interested I would not wait on this because we do have a limited amount of scholarships to award.
Below are the programs that are available, the Android Development is not eligible for the scholarship:
1. Digital Marketing & E-commerce
2. IT Support
3. Data Analytics
4. Project Management
5. UX Design (Web Design)
6. Android Development
