Google is offering academic scholarships and development opportunities to students from historically underrepresented groups pursuing computer science degrees. Selected students will receive a financial award for the 2017-18 academic year and be invited to the annual Google Scholars' Retreat in their region next summer. At the retreat, scholars will participate in networking and development sessions, including sessions on how to lead outreach in their communities. Scholars also join long term a community of former scholarship recipients for continued networking and development.  Check out each program below:

Women Techmakers Scholars Program

Formerly known as the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship, we have joined forces with Google’s Women Techmakers program to continue to honor Dr. Anita Borg and her legacy. Dr. Borg devoted her life to encouraging the presence of women in computing. The program is open to current female undergraduate or graduate students who will be studying at a university for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Generation Google Scholarship

The Generation Google Scholarship was established to help aspiring computer scientists excel in technology and become leaders in the field. This program supports current university students from underrepresented groups including African American, Hispanic, American Indian or Filipino/Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander who will be studying at a university for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Google Lime Scholarship and The Google Europe Scholarship for Students with Disabilities

We’ve partnered with Lime Connect (US/Canada) and EmployAbility (Europe), nonprofit organizations that support students with disabilities while they pursue education and promising careers, to help university students with disabilities work toward their academic goals in the field of computer science. The scholarship is open to current undergraduate or graduate students with disabilities who will be studying at a university for the 2017-2018 academic year.
