Pittsburgh Workforce Org To Get 100 IT Scholarships From Google

Google CEO Sundar Pichai

Nonprofits seeking to make Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods better will now have a shot at a $50,000 grant from Google to further their projects.

Google.org Impact Challenge Pittsburgh is part of a larger initiative by the internet giant to help bridge the digital divide between workers and the skills they’ll need for the jobs of the near future.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled the Grow With Google initiative at the company’s Pittsburgh office last week. It amounts to a $1 billion investment over the next five years in nonprofit organizations and includes a $10 million grant to Goodwill Industries, which will allow the charitable organization to offer digital skills training at all of its locations as part of a new digital career accelerator.
