As part of Google’s ongoing commitment to advancing computing and technology, we are pleased to provide scholarships to encourage students to excel in their studies and become active role models and leaders. We hope these programs also help in dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields.
We currently offer the following scholarship programs:
Women in Tech Conference and Travel
The Google Europe, Middle East and Africa region (EMEA) offers funding for female students and professionals to attend regional conferences to help increase the number of female computer scientists in conference communities.
Global Community Scholarship for the Grace
The Global Community Scholarship offers funding for a group of students outside the US to attend the annual Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing.
Google Anita Borg Scholarship
The Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the legacy of Anita Borg and her efforts to encourage women to pursue careers in computer science and technology. The scholarship is offered in the United States, Europe and Africa, and Australia.
Scholarship for Students with Disabilities
Google is excited to announce the most recent addition to our scholarship programs in Europe, the Google Europe Scholarship for Students with Disabilities. This scholarship is designed for students with disabilities studying Computer Science or Computer Engineering who have shown academic strength and demonstrated a passion for computer science.
Google Zawadi Africa
As part of our ongoing commitments to supporting education in Africa and to diversifying the engineering talent pool, we are encouraging African women to pursue careers in computer science and technology. We’ve partnered with the Zawadi Africa Educational Fund to grant five Kenyan women full scholarships to complete degrees in computer science, computer engineering and/or ICT. The Google Zawadi Scholars will pursue studies at top universities in Kenya and South Africa, and they’ll each have the support of a Google engineering mentor. Selection criteria include excellent academics, extracurricular involvement, leadership potential and financial need.
