Win $250,000 in the 2018 Google Impact Challenge Nigeria

Deadline: July 4, 2018

Applications are invited for the 2018 Google Impact Challenge Nigeria. The Challenge Nigeria supports nonprofits and social enterprises with game-changing ideas to create economic opportunity in their communities. Organizations apply with their most innovative proposals. Finalists get access to funding, mentorship and resources. Eligible nonprofits and social enterprises are invited to apply.

For the first time, the Google Impact Challenge is coming to Nigeria! The Challenge asks local innovators how they would make their community–and beyond–an even better place. The public and a panel of local Judges vote for the ideas with the most potential, and pairs each winner with a package of strategic support, funding and Google volunteers.


  • All 12 finalists are invited to pitch their ideas to our panel of Judges at a final event. The Judges will select three Challenge winners from these finalists, and also announce the people’s choice winner.
  • Each of the four winners will receive a $250,000 grant and training from Google. The remaining 8 finalists will receive a $125,000 grant.


  • Nonprofits and social enterprises are eligible to submit their proposals to create economic opportunity in Nigeria.
  • You must be a registered Nigerian nonprofit or business at the time the application is submitted.

Judging Criteria

  • Community Impact: Does the proposed project create economic opportunity in Nigeria? Does it improve the lives of people in our country?
  • Innovation: Does the project present unexpected solutions to unmet needs?
  • Reach: Does it have the potential to scale directly or to serve as a model for other communities? Will its scope grow over time?
  • Feasibility: Is the project plan (or business plan) well thought-out, and the team well-equipped to execute on it?
