Digital Xtra Fund recently completed its fifth round of grant awards. Grants totalling £110,000 were awarded to 25 extracurricular tech initiatives across Scotland to help inspire the next generation of developers, designers and digital leaders. The projected engagement of these 25 initiatives is 9,184 children and young people, including 4,684 girls and young women, across 22 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.
