Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarships for Women in Africa, Europe and the Middle East

The Google Anita Borg Scholarships was created to honor Anita Borg’s legacy and her efforts to encourage women to pursue careers in computer science and technology.  Scholarship recipients in the United States and Canada will receive an academic grant in addition to being invited to attend the annual Google Scholars Forum in Mountain View, California.  The scholarship is also offered in Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, New Zealand, and the United States.

  Dr. Anita Borg has devoted her adult life to revolutionizing the way we think about technology and dismantling barriers that prevent women and minorities from entering the fields of computing and technology.  Her technical expertise and bold vision continue to inspire and motivate countless women to become active participants and leaders in technology innovation.

  In her honor, Google is proud to honor Anita’s memory and support women in technology with the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship.  Google hopes to encourage women to excel in computing and technology and become effective role models and leaders in this field.

  Each Google Anita Borg Scholarship recipient will receive a cash award for the academic year.  A group of undergraduate and graduate students will be selected from the pool of applicants, and scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of each candidate’s academic background and demonstrated leadership.

  Additionally, all scholarship recipients and finalists will be invited to attend a Google retreat.  We know how important a supportive peer network is to student success.  The retreat will include workshops, speakers, panelists, breakout sessions and social activities scheduled over a period of two days.
