Virginia Ready Scholars who complete a Grow with Google Certificate and engage in the Virginia Ready Scholar Journey walk away with skills and resources to be career-ready and a $1,000 Credential Achievement Award.
Choose Your Path
We offer scholarships for two Grow with Google Certificate programs:
Google Cybersecurity Certificate
Certificate graduates learn how to help organizations monitor and protect networks, devices, people, and data.
This certificate gives learners hands-on experience using Python, Linux, SQL, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools, and intrusion detection systems.
The Google Cybersecurity Certificate helps prepare you for the CompTIA Security+ exam, the industry leading certification for cybersecurity roles. You’ll earn a dual credential when you complete both.
Google Project Management Certificate
Certificate graduates know how to run traditional and Agile projects and programs from initiation to completion. They possess a toolbox of templates and artifacts to manage an array of scenarios and project elements, like schedules, budgets, and product requirements.
Graduates also understand organizational structure, process improvement, risk management techniques, and communication and leadership styles. Upon completion, they are eligible for over 100 education hours to qualify for PMI certifications.
Virginia Ready Scholars must test for and pass the PMI Certified Project Management Professional (CAPM) certification.

The scholarship gives you access to the Grow with Google Certificate program at no cost to you, but keep in mind you will need to schedule and pay for your credential exam.
