YouTube Learning Fund
Learning can take a lot of different shapes - everything from math and machine learning to languages and lawn tips. We see people coming to YouTube everyday to learn something new. Many of these learning stories are powered by an incredible community of creators like you, whose videos have demonstrated the appeal of content that enriches as well as entertains.

In July, we announced YouTube Learning, an initiative to support all those who use YouTube to share their knowledge with the world and the millions of users who come to our platform to learn. This includes investing in:

- Improving the learning experience on YouTube
- Supporting educational creators via the YouTube Learning Fund
- Expanding support for learning partners around the world

We are pleased to share details on the application process for the YouTube Learning Fund. Through this program, we will support selected creators around the world in their creation of multi-session learning content.

We are excited to hear your ideas and support educational creators on our platform.
