Google Scholarship & Google Summer Institute

posted Jan 31, 2014, 5:21 AM by WebMaster Gcs

At Google, we believe information should be universally accessible. Our education and scholarship programs aim to inspire and help students become future leaders in computing and technology by breaking down the barriers that prevent them from entering these fields.  We are now accepting applications for the Generation Google Scholarship and Computer Science Summer Institute.  Read more below and apply today!

Generation Google Scholarship

The Generation Google Scholarship was established to help aspiring computer scientists excel in technology and become leaders in the field. Selected students will receive 10,000 USD (for those studying in the US) or 5,000 CAD (for those studying in Canada) for the 2014-2015 school year. As part of the scholarship, current high school seniors who are entering their first year of university in 2014-2015 will be required to attend Google’s Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI) in the summer of 2014.

Computer Science Summer Institute

Google is invested in increasing the enrollment and retention of computer science students. With this in mind, we’re hosting our seventh annual Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI), a three-week introduction to computer science for graduating high school seniors with a passion for technology —especially students from historically underrepresented groups in the field.

Up to 90 aspiring computer scientists will be selected to attend one of our all-expenses-paid CSSI sessions:

Session 1 will take place in Mountain View, California from July 6 - July 26, 2014

Session 2 will take place in Cambridge, Massachusetts from July 6 - July 26, 2014

Session 3 will take place in Seattle, Washington From July 27 - August 16, 2014

CSSI is not your average summer camp. It's an intensive, interactive, hands-on and fun program that seeks to inspire the tech leaders and innovators of tomorrow by supporting the study of computer science, software engineering and other closely related subjects. As CSSI students, you will learn programming fundamentals directly from Google engineers, get an inside look at some of Google's most exciting, emerging technologies, and even design and develop your very own application with fellow participants that you will showcase to Googlers in local offices.

We are looking for students eager to spend a few weeks living the Google life – tackling interesting technical problems, working collaboratively and having fun. We want students to leave empowered, heading into their first year of college armed with a unique learning experience that can only be had at Google. The program is open to all qualified high school seniors, and is committed to addressing diversity in the field of computer science. Students who are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry are encouraged to apply.

Application deadline: March 3, 2014. Final decisions will be announced by May 1st.
