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.
The Generation Google Scholarship was established to help aspiring computer scientists excel in technology and become leaders in the field. Selected students will receive 10,000 USD (for those studying in the US) or 5,000 CAD (for those studying in Canada) for the 2016-2017 school year. As part of the scholarship, current high school seniors who are entering their first year of university in 2016-2017 will be required to attend Google’s Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI) in the summer of 2016. Current undergraduate or graduate students will be invited to attend the Google Scholars’ Retreat in the summer of 2016.
