Patoranking Foundation, a non-profit organization on a mission to advance Africa through education, entrepreneurship, and empowerment, has launched the $500,000 Patoranking Foundation Tech Scholarships.

In a strategic partnership with ALX Africa, a leading tech training provider, the scholarships will provide 40 young tech-savvy Africans with access to a variety of transformative technology programs in data analytics, cloud computing and Salesforce Administration.

The partnership is aimed at preparing the scholars to become the next pioneers in technology.
Founded by African musician, Patrick Okorie aka Patoranking, the Patoranking Foundation utilizes research, advocacy, and partnerships to provide transformative educational programs and market-ready entrepreneurial skills to outstanding young leaders in Africa.

Having invested over $1 million on youth education in Africa over the last six years, the introduction of a $500,000 tech scholarship in partnership with ALX Africa, marks a new chapter in the Foundation’s mission.

From 30th May 2024, 40 exceptional candidates will stand the chance to participate in world-class tech training programs, developing in-demand tech skills sought after by leading global employers.

Candidates will ideally already be changemakers in their community, and as part of their scholarship, will have the opportunity to qualify for internship opportunities with leading global tech companies to bridge the gap between theory and real-life practice.


The tech scholarship is open to promising tech-savvy candidates from all over Africa. Candidates will be required to successfully complete the ALX admissions process and beneficiaries will be selected after a review of the individual application videos and essays submitted on the foundation’s website.

This $500,000 tech partnership with ALX Africa will be open to youths from all parts of Africa, aged between 18 and 34, at no cost with all related fees covered. Beneficiaries can choose to learn fully remotely or at any of ALX Africa’s hubs in Johannesburg, Accra, Lagos, Casablanca, Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Kigali or Cairo
