Google recognized the 84 recipients and finalists of the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship and the Google Scholarship for Students with Disabilities in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa
The two scholarships aim to encourage underrepresented students to enter the computing field.
The Google Europe Scholarship for Students with Disabilities aims to help dismantle barriers for students with disabilities as well as encourage them to excel in their studies and become active role models and leaders in creating technology.
All of the scholarship candidates are pursuing degrees in computer science or related fields across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. This summer, the candidates will attend the annual Google EMEA Scholarships Retreat in Zurich, Germany, where they can attend tech talks on Google products, sit in on developmental sessions, network with real Googlers, and attend other social activities. Notable speakers at the 2013 retreat include Alan Eustace, SVP of Knowledge, Megan Smith, VP of Google [x], and Carolyn Casey, Founder of Kanchi.org.
Applications for scholarships will open again in just a few months! For more information about Google’s scholarships and student programs visit the Google Students site.
