Google Scholarships

At Google, we believe information should be universally accessible.  Our education and scholarship programs aim to inspire and help students become future leaders in computing and technology by breaking down the barriers that prevent them from entering these fields.  If selected, scholarship recipients will each receive a $5,000 CAD scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year and be invited to attend the all-expense paid Annual Google Scholars' Retreat at the Googleplex this summer.  Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of applicants' academic background, leadership, and demonstrated passion for computer science.
 
Please see below for a list of open scholarships.  All scholarship applications are due on December 2, 2013.
 
Google Anita Borg Scholarship is open to current female undergraduate or graduate students who will be studying at a university in the United States or Canada for the 2014-2015 academic year.
 
Generation Google Scholarship is open to current undergraduate or graduate students from an underrepresented background in computer science who will be studying at a university in United States or Canada for the 2014-2015 academic year.
 
Google Lime Scholarship is open to current undergraduate or graduate students with disabilities who will be studying at a university in United States or Canada for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
