Google are dishing out a total of $340,000 to a number of projects across the globe as part of their annual Roots in Science and Engineering award in order to support science, technology and mathematics (STEM) tuition.

“Our business at Google is rooted in STEM and CS, so we’re passionate about supporting organizations that are expanding access to these fields, especially for students who might not have the opportunity otherwise,” explains Roxana Shirkhoda from K-12 Education Outreach, in the company’s latest blog.

“This year, the Google in Education group received a record number of inspiring applications for RISE. We expanded the awards to include Sub-Saharan Africa, and in total, we’re awarding more than $340,000 in funding to 13 U.S., eight European and five African organizations.”

Winners of Google’s payouts include the Santa Clara Valley Society of Women Engineers in San Jose, California; The Centre for Academic Achievement in Dublin, Ireland; and Savana Signatures in Tamale, Ghana.
