Google for Education just opened applications for the Google RISE Awards, a $10-25k USD grant given to nonprofit organizations globally that give girls and underrepresented students access to computer science through extracurricular outreach programs. In 2015, 37 organizations from 17 countries received RISE Awards for projects ranging from programming clubs in Johannesburg to workshops on CS and music production in San Francisco.
Google RISE Awards Learning Resources Can Inspire More Good Work
The Google RISE Awards provide the winners with more than just grant money. The chosen organizations will also receive access to learning resources from Google experts and volunteers to learn about technical tools and organizational development over the course of the year.
It’s obvious that Google understands that with all the changes that nonprofits face every year, from donor behavior to fundraising and communications practices to technology, only those who continue to learn as they grow, will be able to make a significant impact.
