The Government of São Paulo is offering 25,000 scholarships in technology and innovation in partnership with Startup

Vacancies are for programming courses and give access to the recruitment platform

The State Government of São Paulo, through the Secretariat for Economic Development, has renewed a partnership with the startup DIO, which provides for the distribution of 25 thousand scholarships for free studies in the field of technology and innovation. Vacancies are offered to those enrolled in the SP TECH program and the goal is to include thousands of people from São Paulo in one of the most promising markets in the country and to achieve economic development in the state. Registration is now open and can be done through the website www.cursosviarapida.sp.gov.br.

We care about providing training that increases job opportunities and income for citizens. Zina Latif, Brazil’s Minister of Economic Development, commented on the lack of employment in the IT sector, and these 25,000 vacancies could help meet demand. According to Brascom, by 2025, Brazil could face an annual shortfall of 159,000 IT software and service professionals and see demand for new technicians reach 800,000.

In general, there are four courses: HTML Web Developer, NET Fundamentals, Java Developer, and Java Script Game Developer. All courses distribute a certificate, and the partnership with DIO, signed in 2020, has distributed over 10,000 scholarships.
