Liz Arnold reminds us about some amazing Google scholarships, including the Anita Borg Scholarship. Amy Ousterhout ’13 and Anna Kornfeld Simpson ’14 won this, so feel free to send them any questions about applying.
At Google, we believe information should be universally accessible. Our education and scholarship programs aim to inspire and help students become future leaders in computing and technology by breaking down the barriers that prevent them from entering these fields. If selected, scholarship recipients will each receive a $10,000 USD or $5,000 CAD scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year and be invited to attend the all-expense paid Annual Google Scholars’ Retreat at the Googleplex this summer. Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of applicants’ academic background, leadership, and demonstrated passion for computer science.
Please see below for a list of open scholarships. All scholarship applications are due by 11:59pm pst on December 2, 2013.
