Google Lime Scholarship for Students with Disabilities

Access to knowledge is our thing. When it comes to higher education for promising scholars, we don’t want anything to stand in the way. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Lime. Google is committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their talents by providing scholarships and networking retreats for computer science students with disabilities.

Recipients of the Google Lime Scholarship will receive a scholarship for the 2010–2011 academic year. Selected students will also be invited to attend the all-expenses-paid retreat at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA, in 2011. Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates’ academic background, leadership and passion for computer science - $10,000 USD for those studying in the US and $5,000 CAD for those studying in Canada (based on average tuition costs).

Eligibility Requirements

Candidates must be:

* A current junior or senior year of undergraduate study or enrolled in a graduate program at a university
in the United States or Canada (in addition to US and Canada citizens, international students with
disabilities studying at universities in the US or Canada are also encouraged to apply)
* Enrolled in a Computer Science or Computer Engineering program, or a closely related technical
feld, as a full-time student for the 2010–2011 academic year
* A person with a disability (defi­ned as someone who has, or considers themselves to have , a
long-term, or recurring, issue that impacts one or more activities that others may consider a
daily function); this defi­nition also includes the perception among others that a disability exists.
