To support Ukrainians whose jobs and livelihoods have been affected by the war, INCO has received over €3 million in grant funding from Google.org to provide up to 5,000 scholarships to Ukrainians covering the cost of a Coursera subscription to access “Professional Certificates from Google”. The grant will allow INCO, through its Work in Tech program in cooperation with Prometheus, PRJCTR and VUM, to open up opportunities for Ukrainians to acquire important digital skills and receive additional support in acquiring knowledge and professional development. This grant is part of a contribution from Google.org and Googlers of more than $40 million in cash grants and $5 million in donations.
