Digital Xtra Fund recently completed its fourth round of grant awards, and second as an independent charity. Grants totalling £100,000 were awarded to 22 extracurricular initiatives across Scotland in a bid to create the next generation of digital experts. The projected engagement of these 22 initiatives is 9,920 children and young people, including 5,058 girls and young women, across 25 local authorities.
All of these initiatives have demonstrated the ability to engage, inspire, and enable young people and help demonstrate the huge variety of careers these skills can open up for them. Results from this grant cycle can be found here.
