About Generation Google Scholarship

The Google Scholarship generation was created to help to aspire computer scientists excel in technology and become leaders in the field.

A group of undergraduate and graduate students will be selected from among the candidates, and scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of each candidate’s impact on diversity, demonstrated leadership and academic background.

Selected students will receive $10,000 (for those studying in the United States) or 5,000 CAD (for those studying in Canada).

At Google, we believe that information must be universally accessible. Our education and scholarship programs are designed to inspire and help students become future leaders in the fields of computer science and technology by removing barriers that prevent them from accessing these areas.

As part of this scholarship, high school students entering the first year of college in 2022 must attend the Google Summer Computing Institute (CSSI) in the summer of 2022. Current first-year students will be invited to the cycle or the graduate to attend the Google researchers retreat in the summer of 2022.
