In an effort to create a society in which information is universally accessible, Google has partnered with EmployAbility, an organization dedicated to assisting individuals with disabilities pursuing further education, to create a dynamic scholarship program. This program is designed for university students who are planning to study computer science, informatics, computer engineering, or a related technical field at a European or Israeli university.
To be eligible, applicants must be full- or part-time students for the 2018-2019 academic year, and must have some form of disability. Applicants must have strong academic records and show exemplary leadership skills and a passion for Computer Science. Google employees may not apply, nor may individuals younger than 18 years of age.
To apply, candidates must submit a general information application and also supply a resume, transcript, and short answer responses. Each essay question responses should be around 400 to 600 words in total. When writing the essays, candidates should keep a technical format in mind. This means that writers should first supply an overview of the problem, a sample approach to the key technical challenges, a resolution, and conclusions.
Candidates must also request a letter of recommendation, and evidence that they are planning to enroll in a Bachelor’s. Master’s. or PhD program in computer science or a related field. All materials must be submitted via the online form. While international students may apply, those who hail from embargoed countries will not be considered.
Selected applicants will receive an award equivalent to 7,000 Euros. Ten candidates will be selected in total, with the award designated for tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment, and related expenses. Funds will be distributed directly to the award recipient.
The application window opens on December 6, 2018 and will remain open until a quota has been reached.
