In partnership with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Google Philippines will be offering 39,000 Filipinos the chance to study and complete an online certificate course through its Google Career Certificates Scholarships. 

Filipinos 18 years old and above are encouraged to apply for the online certificate course which may run from 6 months to a year. Courses include IT support, data analytics, UX design and project management.
