At Google, we believe that everyone should have access to quality education, especially promising academics with disabilities. Since 2008, we have proudly supported Lime Connect’s efforts in assisting the next generation of innovators. As part of this commitment, we are sponsoring scholarships and networking getaways for computer science students with disabilities in Canada and the United States.
Scholarship Overview: The Google Lime Scholarship is a merit-based program aimed at empowering students pursuing undergraduate or postgraduate studies in computer science, computer engineering, or related technical disciplines.
The number of scholarships awarded varies each year, and successful candidates will receive either $10,000 (for students studying in the United States) or $5,000 (for those studying in Canada). The scholarships are renewable, providing continued support throughout the recipient’s academic journey.
