Google is furthering Dr. Anita Borg’s vision of the creation of gender equality in the tech industry by encouraging young women to excel as active contributors and leaders in the field.
Women Techmakers (WTM) is therefore glad to announce two new scholarships.
Firstly, via their partnership with Stadia (Google’s all new gaming platform), they’re expanding their Scholars Program to support students pursuing gaming degrees in addition to those pursuing computer science degrees.
Secondly, via the WTM Irish University scholarship, they’re introducing a multi year scholarship for students pursuing their undergraduate degree in Ireland.
Women Techmakers Scholars for Computer Science and Gaming will each receive a 7,000 EUR award (or local equivalent) for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Women Techmakers Irish Scholars will each receive 5,000 EUR on an annual basis for the period of their undergraduate studies.
Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of each candidate’s impact on diversity, demonstrated leadership, and academic background.
The program is open to students who will meet all the minimum qualifications and they strongly encourage women to apply.
All scholarship recipients will be invited to the Google Scholars Retreat in the summer of 2020 to connect with fellow scholars, network with Googlers, and participate in a number of development workshops.
