The Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the legacy of Anita Borg and her efforts to encourage women to pursue careers in computer science and technology. Scholarship recipients in the US and Canada will receive an academic scholarship as well as be invited to attend the Annual Google Scholars’ Retreat in Mountain View, CA. The scholarship is also offered in Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, New Zealand, and the United States. 

Google Anita Borg Scholarship recipients will each receive a financial award for the academic year. A group of female undergraduate and graduate students will be chosen from the applicant pool, and scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of each candidate’s academic background and demonstrated leadership. 

In addition, all scholarship recipients and finalists will be invited to attend a retreat at Google. The retreat will include workshops, speakers, panelists, breakout sessions and social activities scheduled over a couple of days.
