Generation Google Scholarship helps minority students who plan to attend college and study computer science and technology. Eligible students must be African American, Hispanic, American Indian, female, or one who has a disability.
The scholarship program provides financial assistance for underrepresented groups to attend college. Students awarded a scholarship begin by attending Google’s Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI) in the summer prior to their entering college. The all-expense paid program gives students a head start on computer science by learning all about what technology can do to improve our lives.
Applicants must be high school seniors planning to attend full-time a U.S. or Canadian college or university with the intention of earning a degree in computer science or computer engineering. Current undergraduate and graduate students may also apply. The scholarship is for underrepresented students only. The scholarship may be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment for college.
Google is offering the scholarship to enable more underrepresented students have an equal opportunity to pursue a career in computer science and technology. The scholarship goal is to encourage more students to take a leadership role in technology as a career goal.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in DECEMBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $5,000 – $10,000.
