The I4G Micro-scholarships program awards partial final year scholarships and a laptop to qualified individuals studying computer science, who are indigenes of African countries. In the near future, based on this pilot program, the I4G Micro-scholarships program will award full-ride scholarships to qualified individuals studying computer science courses that are known for graduating job-ready and founder-ready talent in Babcock, Covenant University, and similar schools in Africa with great educational training facilities, considered the “ivy-leagues” of Africa.
The scholarship seeks to develop youth leaders in tech who are ready to put their learned skills to work in leading organizations, communities, and their local countries. The scholarship grants students the opportunity to study at the Ivy-Leagues of Africa.
