Cloud Student Sprint Program
Learn about Cloud, Google’s fastest growing business
In the 12 weeks of Cloud Student Sprint, you’ll find yourself learning about Google Cloud through an online platform and Qwiklabs, and also through your Google mentor, who’ll be taking you through their career journey and industry best practices. This program is structured in a way that is flexible so you can have an internship or be in school at the same time, and it culminates in you getting the opportunity to take the Associate Cloud Engineering Exam to be certified in Cloud!
Eligibility and application: Students must be:
- Studying at a university based in Singapore
- Bachelors or Masters student
- Have taken at least four computer programming modules
- Graduating in 2021 or 2022
- Interested and excited about Cloud!
What's the ACE certification?
Google Cloud certifications validate your expertise and show your ability to transform businesses with Google Cloud technology. The associate level certification is focused on the fundamental skills of deploying, monitoring, and maintaining projects on Google Cloud. This certification is a good starting point for those new to Cloud and can be used as a path to professional level certifications.
This is not an easy certification to pass, so we're looking for those students who want to be challenged and industry-ready, as we've created a program that will prepare you to take the Associate Cloud Engineer Certification exam. We're looking for students who want to gain industry insights while they're in school and build that extra marketable skill set to add on their resume!

Will I need to pay for any part of the program or the exam? We're so glad you asked — that's what makes this program pretty special! For the students selected in the program, for those who finish the course in its entirety, will receive the vouchers to take their exam for free. As for the 12 week's worth of curriculum, you will have access to the courses for free during this period.
Will our weekly sessions with mentors be virtual or onsite? Safety and health comes first for our Googlers and our community. If it happens that large gatherings pose a safety risk, then we will change our in-person sessions to virtual meet-ups. That's the great thing about this program - we will have a back up plan no matter what so it doesn't disturb your learning and skill-building for your future career. This past cohort this summer was 100% virtual, and we still had a blast!
Will being a part of this program lead to an internship at Google? Word on the street is that there will be Google Cloud internships next summer in APAC, so there could be a possibility that some of the students in this program end up joining us next summer as a Google intern.
In what countries is Cloud Student Sprint launched? Currently, we’re running the program in Singapore only. Check back in this space as there are plans to expand it to other APAC countries!
