Smartphone Programming Course for Young Africans (Scholarship Available)

Deadline: April 17th, 2022
Applications for the SuaCode Intro to Programming Course are invited to the April 2022 cohort. SuaCode is a smartphone-based online course that teaches coding in English and French to Africans with little or no programming experience through our SuaCode Android app. A total of 100 learners will be selected at the end of the first week to receive FULL SCHOLARSHIPS sponsored by the EdTech AI startup,

Learners will be introduced to basic coding concepts over 4 weeks while spending about 5 – 7 hours a week reading lesson notes, completing quizzes and assignments, while building a smartphone app — a pong game — in the process. And then get a verifiable certificate at the end. Also, learners get to interact with other Africans in our course forum and get answers to questions from Kwame, our AI Teaching Assistant.


  • Selected learners will receive merit and need-based scholarships at the end of the first week based on a combination of their:
    1. Need,
    2. Quiz and assignment performance and
    3. Helpfulness to other SuaCoders in the forum
  • Learners who complete the course will receive a verifiable and shareable certificate
  • Learners who complete assignments with outstanding performance and proactively help other learners on the course forum will have the opportunity to get exclusive mentoring sessions with professionals from tech companies such as Amazon, Google, and Facebook.


  • Open to young Africans (13 years and above)
  • Applicants should have an Android device and a commitment to learning
  • The program will be in both English and French, so knowledge of any of the languages is required.


To apply,

  • Download the SuaCode Android app here
  • Enroll in the “Introduction to Programming (April)” course on the SuaCode Android app
  • Make sure you tick the option for “Request for Scholarship” and for the “Reason” section, write a short paragraph telling us why you need the scholarship and how the course will benefit you.

    1. Hello Philip, Sorry to hear you’re having technical challenges, can wait and log in again after a few minutes. Or re-download the app and give it another try, if you have not already done so. Keep us posted if anything changes. Best – SuaCode Team
