Greetings, * * Google is proud to announce that applications are now open for several of our Diversity Scholarships! We are even more excited to announce that two of our scholarships, *UNCF and AISES*, are now open to students in Canada for the first time!
Because we are promoting these scholarships for the first time in Canada, I am asking for your help in promoting these opportunities to your students. Please pass along the below e-mail to any students or student groups who you think may be interested.
Also, if you have contacts at any diversity offices or organizations that you think might be helpful in promoting opportunities like these, I would love to connect with them. Please feel free to either send me their contact information or give them mine and I'd be happy to reach out.
As part of Google's ongoing commitment to advancing computing and technology, we are pleased to provide scholarships to students studying computer science. Google's scholarship programs award students from diverse backgrounds who are studying computer science to encourage them to excel in their studies and become active role models and leaders in the field.
If selected, recipients will each receive a *$5,000 CAD scholarship* for the 2012-2013 academic year and be invited to attend the all-expense paid *Annual Google Scholars' Retrea*t at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA. Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of applicants' academic background and demonstrated passion for computer science.
