Women Techmakers Scholars will each receive $10,000 USD (for students in the US) or $5,000 CAD (for students in Canada) for the 2019-2020 academic year. A group of undergraduate and graduate students will be chosen from the applicant pool, and scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of each candidate’s impact on diversity, demonstrated leadership and academic background. The program is open to qualified students who meet the criteria and we strongly encourage people who identify as female to apply. All scholarship recipients will be invited to attend the annual Google Scholars’ Retreat in Mountain View, California in 2019 to connect with fellow scholars, network with Googlers and participate in a number of development workshops.

Professional development and community outreach opportunities will continue to be offered after the retreat. As a Women Techmakers Scholar, you will join a global community of Scholars Program participants designed to provide a forum to share resources, support other women in tech and collaborate on projects to make continued impact.
