Application Deadline:  January 17, 2023 Midnight EAT.

Through the Responsible Computer Science Challenge, USAID and Mozilla are supporting the conceptualization, piloting, and scaling of curricula that integrate interdisciplinary perspectives with computer science training. This process will educate a new wave of technologists to account for the human consequences of technology design and use, to reimagine our technology ecosystems, and to build a better future. The hope is that these educational experiences will provide future technologists with the historical and social context they need to better understand the impact of their work and equip them with frameworks to build responsible trustworthy technologies.

Eligibility

The Responsible Computer Science Challenge is open to accredited institutions of higher education and innovation hubs based in Kenya.

Awards

The Responsible Computer Science Challenge plans to award 10 grants from a pool of $250 000 USD to innovation hubs and accredited institutions of higher education in Kenya that embed ethics into computer science programs and curricula.
