Application for the 2022 cohort of the Computer Science Academy Tech Workshop for Young Africans has commenced for interested and qualified candidates.
The workshop is a funded one which provides travel/accommodation support for people outside Lagos or Nigeria and is sponsored by the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow in Scotland.
The programme which will be hosted by the University of Lagos aims to provide young African undergraduates and postgraduates in STEM with computer programming skills and access to quality computer science education.
Several other scholarships are available in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom and Canada that offers full scholarships and monthly allowances. Here are some suggestions you should check out;

The Computer Science Academy Tech Workshop for Young Africans is an initiative aiming to provide young Africans in STEM with access to quality computer science education.
As a first step towards achieving this, we are running an annual Python programming workshop to empower undergraduates and postgraduates in STEM with computer programming skills, so that they can acquire the foundational skills and confidence needed to pursue and thrive in a computing related career.
To be considered for the scholarship, you must:
Be a national and resident of an African country.
Have a post-secondary education (either a current university student or a graduate).
Be interested in learning Python programming, and have some thoughts on how these skills will be of relevance to them.
Be available to attend the workshop physically in Lagos from 18 July – 05 August (subject to funding received from our sponsors, we intend to provide travel/accommodation support for people outside Lagos or Nigeria).
