This brings Google’s total commitment to computer science education to more than $240 million since 2004. The announcement is part of the Grow with Google initiative and includes funding from Google.org.

“We’ll focus our efforts on supporting organizations who reach underserved students in major urban centers and rural communities, and who help governments and educators implement CS education plans nationwide,” Sundar Pichai said in a statement.

Earlier this year, Google partnered with the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture to train 2,000 teachers on digital skills, enabling them to reach 200,000 rural students by the end of the 2023 school year.

More than 9 million people in the US have learned new skills through Grow with Google — including Google Career Certificates, which prepare people for jobs in growing fields.
