Google is known for promoting knowledge and helping the best and brightest get a higher education. Google has now partnered with Lime Connect to provide networking retreats and scholarships to students with disabilities. Students chosen to receive the Google Lime Scholarship will receive $10,000 toward higher education as well as attendance to the Google Scholars’ Retreat in Mountain View, California at the Googleplex. If you are a student with disabilities who is interested in entering computer engineering, computer science, or a related technical field, this scholarship is created just for you.
To be eligible for the Google Lime scholarship, students must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Canada and must be pursuing a degree in computer engineering, computer science, or a very closely related field. In addition, students must be in the second year of undergraduate school or higher with a very strong academic performance.
Qualified students must also have a visible or invisible disability, such as any long-term or recurring issue that severely impacts the ability to function on a daily basis. Candidates must demonstrate a passion for their chosen degree paths as well as a commitment to the industry in which they desire to work.
