At Google, we believe a diversity of attributes, experiences, and perspectives are needed to build tools that can change the world. 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), in Europe for women in technology and in India for students who have their research papers accepted at top-tier conferences in Computer Science and related areas.

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

  • Free conference registration
  • North America: A $500 reimbursement to retroactively be used toward airfare and accommodation costs (will be awarded after the conference)
  • Europe: Up to 1000 EUR towards travel and accommodation costs (will be paid after the conference)
  • India: An award in the range of $1000 – $3,000 that will cover conference registration, travel, accommodation and other related expenses.
