Access to knowledge is our thing. When it comes to higher education for promising scholars, we don't want anything to stand in the way. That's why we're proud to support the work of Lime Connect. Google is committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their talents by providing scholarships and networking retreats for computer science students with disabilities.
Recipients of the 2013 Google Lime Scholarship will each receive a scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. Selected students will also be invited to attend the annual Google Scholars' Retreat at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California, in 2013. All candidates will also be considered for software engineering internship opportunities wiht Google. Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates' academic background and demonstrated passion for computer science - $10,000 for those studying in the US and $5,000 for those studying in Canada (based on tuition costs).
Google Lime Scholars and the Lime Connect team loved the 2012 Scholars Retreat in Mountain View!
