Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue a career in computer science and technology, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, disability or military service. To help break down the barriers that prevent underrepresented groups in computer science from attending leading tech conferences, we’re excited to offer Google Travel and Conference Grants for selected conferences in Computer Science and related fields.

Grants are available in North America for all traditionally underrepresented groups in technology (including, but not limited to, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, persons with disabilities, women and veterans) and in Europe for women in technology.

To encourage attendance at technical conferences, Google will provide selected recipients:

  • Free conference registration
  • North America: A $500 prepaid gift card that can be retroactively used toward airfare and accommodation costs, where applicable (will be awarded onsite at the conference)
  • Europe: Up to 1000 EUR towards travel and accommodation costs (will be paid after the conference)
