An exciting opportunity for university students pursuing degrees in computer science, computer engineering and closely related fields, The Google Lime Scholarship for Students with Disabilities provides US$10,000 or US$5,000, internship consideration and a Scholars Retreat at the Googleplex in Mountain View. Deadline to apply: December 6, 2015.

NEW YORK, NY – December 1, 2015 – “The Google Scholar’s Retreat excited me about the company, and by the end of an awesome few days I knew I wanted to come back to Google as an intern the following summer. I did – twice – and will return full time upon graduation next summer!”

Access to knowledge is our thing. When it comes to higher education for promising scholars, we don't want anything to stand in the way. That's why Google is proud to support the work of Lime Connect since 2008.  Google is committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their talents by providing scholarships and networking retreats for computer science students with disabilities.

Recipients of the 2016 Google Lime Scholarship will each receive a scholarship for the 2016-2017 academic year.  Selected students will also be invited to attend the annual Google Scholars' Retreat at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California, in Summer, 2016.  Candidates will also be considered for software engineering internship opportunities with Google. 

Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates' academic background and demonstrated passion for computer science - $10,000 for those studying in the US and $5,000 for those studying in Canada (based on tuition costs).
