Google Women Techmakers Scholarship Program 2020/2021 for Women in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)

Google Women Techmakers Scholarship Program

Google Women Techmakers Scholarship Program


Through the Women Techmakers Scholars Programme – formerly the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship Programme – 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.

Application Deadline:
5th December 2019 11:59 pm GMT.

Offered annually?
Yes

Eligible Countries:
Women from Europe, the Middle East and Africa

To be taken at: Universities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa

Eligible Subject Areas:
Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Informatics or a closely related technical field

About the Award:
Dr. Anita Borg devoted her adult life to revolutionising the way we think about technology and dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields. She proposed the “50/50 by 2020” initiative, so that women earning computing degrees would be 50% of the graduates by year 2020. However, the percentage of Computer Science degrees earned by women is still far from 50% throughout the world.


As part of Google’s ongoing commitment to furthering Anita’s vision, Google is proud to honor Anita’s memory and support women in technology with the Women Techmakers Scholars Program (formerly the Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship).

Through the scholarship, Google aim to encourage women to excel in computing and technology, and become active role models and leaders.
