Congratulations to the 2018 Google scholarship recipients! (449 hits)

Here at Google, we recognize the challenges faced by underrepresented students in the tech industry. We strive to make education more accessible by creating programs to engage students around the world. As part of our initiatives focused on expanding diversity, we offer academic scholarships and a trip to a Google office to learn more about our company and culture, network with a community of fellow scholars, and participate in professional development opportunities. Our goal is to not only support their academic pursuits, but also empower scholars to encourage and inspire others.

We are thrilled to announce this years recipients who represent 89 universities in 22 countries. This year’s scholars have demonstrated a passion for technology, academic excellence, and have proven themselves as exceptional leaders and role models within their communities. We recently selected recipients for the following scholarship programs:

•Women Techmakers Scholars Program (US, Canada, and Europe, Middle East & Africa)
•Generation Google Scholarship for high school and university students from underrepresented backgrounds in computer science
•Google Lime Scholarship for students with disabilities (US/Canada) and Google Europe Scholarship for Students with Disabilities
•Google Student Veterans of America (SVA) Scholarship for student veterans

Congratulations to our 2018 scholarship recipients! These students will join a community of over 2,500 Google scholars who are becoming leaders in their field and inspiring the next generation of computer science students. We can’t wait to see to see how these students continue to shape the future of computer science.
