Since 2004, Google has awarded almost 2,500 scholarships to students from underrepresented groups in technology to inspire and help them become future leaders in the field. We are excited to announce this year’s Google scholarship recipients in the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Africa!
These students come from diverse backgrounds, are passionate about technology, and have proven themselves as leaders and role models within their communities. By supporting these students with an academic scholarship and a trip to Google for the annual Scholars’ Retreat, we hope to not only support their academic pursuits but also empower Scholars to encourage and inspire those around them.
We recently selected recipients from 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 Student Veterans of America (SVA) Scholarship for student veterans
Congratulations to the 2017 recipients of these scholarships who represent 88 universities in 19 countries. 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 Women Techmakers Scholars Program for Asia Pacific.
