About this funder:



Through the Women Techmakers Scholars Program - formerly the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship Program - Google is furthering Dr. Anita Borg’s vision of creating gender equality in the tech industry by encouraging women to excel as active participants and leaders in the field.

Europe, Middle East and Africa

Women Techmakers Scholars will each receive a 7,000 EUR award (or local equivalent) for the 2020-2021 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 women to apply. All scholarship recipients will be invited to the annual Google Student Retreat in the summer of 2020 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 Techmaker Scholar, you will join a global community of scholars, have access to a forum to share resources, support other women in tech, and collaborate on projects to make a continued impact in your community.
