Google Women Techmakers Scholars Program 2020/2021 for Female Students ( 7,000 EUR Award & Funded to Women Techmakers Scholars’ Retreat in summer 2020)

Through the Women Techmakers Scholars Program – formerly the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship Program – Google is furthering Dr. Anita Borg’s vision of creating gender equality in the tech industry by encouraging women to excel as active participants and leaders in the field.

Women Techmakers (WTM) is excited to announce two new scholarships. Firstly, through our partnership with Stadia, Google’s all new gaming platform, we’re expanding our Scholars Program to support students pursuing gaming degrees in addition to those pursuing computer science degrees. Secondly, through the WTM Irish University scholarship, we’re introducing a multi year scholarship for students pursuing their undergraduate degree in Ireland.

Women Techmakers Scholars for Computer Science and Gaming will each receive a 7,000 EUR award (or local equivalent) for the 2020-2021 academic year. Women Techmakers Irish Scholars will each receive 5,000 EUR on an annual basis for the duration of their undergraduate studies.
