Grants of up to $15,000 are available to universities in Africa and the Middle East to teach computer science and encourage computational thinking in the middle and high school systems. Grants will awarded for teacher and student training as well as teacher resource projects with most grants being awarded for teacher training workshops.

Funding will be provided in the following areas:
(A) Teacher training workshops- Universities develop 2-3 day workshops for local high school computer science teachers. These workshops incorporate informational talks by industry leaders, and discussions on new and emerging computer science curricula at high school level.

(B) Student training workshops- Universities develop a series of computer science workshops/scalable activities directed at secondary students to raise awareness of computer science as a discipline. This can be in addition to teacher workshops and resources. These projects are particularly aimed at computer science students who are at a disadvantage due to access to teaching resources or who are minority groups in computer science.

(C) Teacher resource projects- Developing projects aimed at raising awareness of computer science as a discipline for teachers and students or develop scalable teaching resources. These projects must have nation-wide impact.
