Here at Google, we strive to create meaningful connections with rising computer science talent by creating programs that engage students from around the world. While these individuals come from different backgrounds and experiences, many have faced the challenge of being underrepresented in the tech industry. We’re working to change that.
As part of our initiatives focused on expanding diversity, Google offers scholarships that support and encourage underrepresented students to pursue careers in computer science and become part of the next generation of tech leaders. We recently selected recipients from the following scholarship programs:
- Generation Google Scholarship for high school and university students from underrepresented backgrounds in computer science.
- Google Lime Scholarship for students with disabilities.
- Google Student Veterans of America (SVA) Scholarship for student veterans.
We’re excited to announce the 2016 recipients of these scholarships, and congratulate them for their hard work and dedication. These students will join a community of Google scholars who are actively changing the diversity status quo in the tech industry. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these exceptional students!
Stay tuned for our announcement of the Google Europe Scholarship for Students with Disabilities and Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship for Asia Pacific.
