WASHINGTON (AP) - Google is announcing $23 million in grants to spur innovation among charities and increase education for girls and minority students in science and technology.
Seven nonprofits will win the first Google Global Impact Awards on Tuesday.
Charity: Water receives $5 million to use water-monitoring technology at 4,000 wells across Africa.
Donorschoose.org receives $5 million to create 500 new Advanced Placement science and math classes with the College Board for underrepresented students.
The World Wildlife Fund receives $5 million to adapt sensors and animal tagging technology to detect and deter poaching.
The Smithsonian's Barcode of Life project gets $3 million to use DNA barcoding to protect endangered species.
Additional grantees include GiveDirectly, Equal Opportunity Schools and the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. Google says innovation is underfunded among nonprofits.
