Google India has announced 130K scholarships for Developers and students across the country, keeping up the promise that Google CEO Sundar Pichai made back in 2015 to train 2 Million New Android Developers in India in the next 3 years. Google India has collaborated with online education company Pluralsight and educational organization Udacity to help train 1.3 Lakh developers and students across India and create technically-advanced workforce in India that matches the pace of the Global Village.

As statement released by Google India on Thursday reads, "Today, we are taking a big step forward by partnering with Pluralsight and Udacity for a new scholarship program that will help 130K developers and students across India to gain the skills they need to be successful in the changing technology landscape."

Further adding "At Google, we have consistently invested in helping the developer and Startup community to get easy access to all the latest technology that is shaping the world today. And in the last few years, we have broadened our efforts in India by going beyond professional developers and Startups to focusing on student community as well."

What's In It for Students & Developers
Google India is facilitating 100 Thousand (1 Lakh) Scholarships on Pluralsight and 30 Thousand Scholarships on Udacity for the meritorious candidates helping them gain advanced insight into fields like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Mobile and Web development, AR/VR and Cloud Platforms. From the 30K scholarships at Udacity, top candidates will be selected for 1K full Nano-degree scholarships too. 

Arun Rajamani, Country Head & General Manager, Pluralsight, stated, "We are thrilled to partner with Google to help developers across India understand their skill level using Pluralsight IQ and advance their skill sets in four key roles: Android Developer, Mobile Web Specialist, Cloud Architect, and Data Engineer. We are excited to see technology professionals in India future-proof their skills, move strongly towards full stack development, and push the boundaries of innovation that will create a stronger India and a better world through technology."

Ishan Gupta, Managing Director, Udacity India, explained, "The Scholarship program would have two phases. The first phase would have free access to our courses in mobile and web development along with mentorship and community support. The top 1000 students earn an additional 6-month scholarship to our Mobile and Web Developer Nanodegree programs, which includes mentorship, community support, and expert project reviews."

Work In Progress
The Global Tech-Giant is already engaged with students across the country and over 2 Lakh students have already completed Google-Developed courses on Udacity while over 1 Lakh students are currently engaged on Pluralsight.

Recognising the Potential
William Florance, Developer Products Group and Skilling Lead for India at Google stated, "India has tremendous potential to become a hub of innovation for mobile and cloud technologies. And the key to building innovative solutions and supporting the fast growing startup ecosystem in India, is to invest in skilling India's large IT workforce and provide the future workforce easy access to world class training, tools and support."
