Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship

Deadline: Early February

From Google’s website:

Dr. Anita Borg devoted her adult life to revolutionizing the way we think about technology        and dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and        technology fields. Her combination of technical expertise and fearless vision continues to        inspire and motivate countless women to become active participants and leaders in creating        technology.

In her honor, Google is proud to honor Anita’s memory and support women in technology with        the 2012 Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship. Google hopes to encourage women to excel        in computing and technology and become active role models and leaders in the field.

Google Anita Borg Scholarship recipients will each receive a $10,000 award for the        2012-2013 academic year. A group of female undergraduate and graduate students will be        chosen from the applicant pool, and scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of        each candidate’s academic background and demonstrated leadership. All scholarship        recipients and finalists will be invited to attend the Annual Google Scholars’ Retreat in        Mountain View, California in 2012.
