We invest in projects and organisations that expand access to learning

We've committed over $160 million in the last 5 years to philanthropic grants to tackle global education gaps, while empowering Googlers to volunteer their technical expertise. Our goal is to help more people – especially those in underserved communities – benefit from the promise of technology, in the classroom and beyond.

Working towards equity in education, worldwide

Technology can create richer learning environments and improve learning outcomes, but not all students benefit equally from these advances.

Through Google.org, we’re providing $50 million in grant funding to organisations tackling this challenge in three ways: providing the students with the right learning materials, giving teachers the latest skills and techniques and making learning possible outside of the classroom.

Supporting underserved schools and communities

Bridging the digital divide will require more than devices and connectivity. We must also equip teachers with the skills, tools and the training they need to use that technology effectively in the classroom.

That’s why we launched the Dynamic Learning Project – a new pilot that’s part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that the benefits of technology reach every classroom. To start, we are providing a $7 million grant to Digital Promise that will support full-time technology coaches at 50 low-income middle schools across the USA. These coaches will empower educators in their communities to improve student learning outcomes through technology.

Turning bus time into learning time

While schoolwork increasingly requires access to the internet, millions of students still lack connectivity at home.

We’re working with districts across the US to expand Rolling Study Halls to help thousands of students in rural communities access more learning hours outside of school by powering their school buses with wifi, devices and onboard educator support.

Helping equip the next generation with future skills

More than 65% of students will work in jobs that don’t even exist today,¹ but most young people aren’t yet developing the problem-solving skills or basic digital competencies that they’ll need to be prepared for that future.

We are providing grant funding to non-profits and building programmes to expand access to computer science education, and helping train more female and under-represented students in computational thinking. It’s our goal to prepare every learner with the adaptive skills that they need to tackle the future's biggest challenges.
