Sankofatech Achievers in Technology Program 2024

Sankofatech is proud to introduce the Achievers in Technology (AIT) Program, a forward-thinking initiative designed to forge the future leaders of the technology sector from the African diaspora in the United States. Our mission stems from a recognition of the barriers that hold back many young African descendants from pursuing careers in technology – including misconceptions about the industry’s prestige, a lack of awareness, and limited access to essential resources.


The AIT Program is our response to these challenges, offering a comprehensive four-year scholarship and mentorship journey. Participants in the AIT initiative enjoy a plethora of benefits, including a scholarship award of up to $2,000 over four years, personalized guidance from industry experts, professional development opportunities such as job readiness training, and exclusive access to a vibrant community of tech professionals. This holistic approach not only equips scholars with technical skills but also integrates them into a supportive network, preparing them for successful careers in technology.


Eligibility for this transformative program is open to first-year college or university students in the U.S. for the academic year 2024-2025, with a keen interest in technology fields such as Software Engineering, Data Science, or Information Security, among others. Applicants must be of African descent and come from a low-income household. The selection process involves an application due by April 27, 2024, followed by interviews for selected candidates, with final decisions communicated by July 2024. To apply or learn more about this unparalleled opportunity, visit Sankofatech at Don’t miss the chance to become part of a community dedicated to breaking barriers and shaping the future of technology.
