Google RISE - Roots in Science and Engineering - Awards are designed to promote and support Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and Computer Science (CS) education initiatives. We grant awards to organizations working with K-12/Primary and Secondary schools to provide enrichment programs in these fields.
Google believes that technology will continue to play an important role in shaping our future, and the youth of today will help innovate and drive these technologies for years to come. We hope that all students will one day have the chance to reach their potential and achieve great things in science. To that end, we aspire to help students take one step closer to achieving their potential by offering organizational growth and development opportunities through the Google RISE Awards.
Award amounts range from $5,000 - $25,000 USD.
“RISE is a word that we like to toss around a lot here, and it's not just because we were the recipients of their generous grant. We're a team of high school students trying to build a robot [and RISE allowed] us to buy the raw material needed for our aspiring engineers to step up and be brilliant, to rise above the commonplace to create something truly inspiring.” -- Team Captain, NOHOROBO
