Bourse d’études : Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship Program  2019

 

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 field of computer science by encouraging women to excel in computing and technology and become active leaders and role models in the field.

 

Who is Anita Borg?

Dr. Anita Borg (1949–2003) believed that technology affects all aspects of our economic, political, social and personal lives. A technology rebel with a cause, she fought tirelessly to ensure that technology’s impact would be a positive one. Dr. Anita Borg devoted her adult life to revolutionizing the way we think about technology and dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields.

Her combination of technical expertise and fearless vision continues to inspire and motivate countless women to become active participants and leaders in creating technology.

Google is proud to honor Anita’s memory and support women in technology with the Women Techmakers Scholars Program.

 

The Scholars Program consists of the following elements:

 

Scholarship

An academic scholarship, awarded based on academic performance, leadership, and impact on the community of women in tech.

Retreat

An opportunity to connect with fellow scholars and Google mentors, while participating in professional and personal development trainings and workshops.

Community

An online network with fellow scholars program participants designed to share resources, support the global community of women in tech and collaborate on projects to make continued impact.
