Applications are now open for Google’s Computer Science Summer Institute and the Generation Google Scholarship.
Are you a current senior in high school interested in studying computer science at university? The 2015 Generation Google Scholarship for First Years and Computer Science Summer Institute is now accepting applications.
Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI) is a three-week introduction to computer science for graduating high school seniors with a passion for technology — especially students from historically underrepresented groups in the field.
The Generation Google Scholarship for high school seniors helps aspiring computer scientists excel in technology and become leaders in the field. Selected students will receive 10,000 USD or 5,000 CAD (for those studying in Canada) for the 2015-2016 school year. As part of the scholarship, current high school seniors who are entering their first year of university in 2015-2016 will be required to attend CSSI in the summer of 2015.
Where: This year, there will be day-camp and residential. Day camps will take place in Chicago, IL, Mountain View, CA, and New York City, NY. Residential camps will take place in Cambridge, MA and Seattle, WA.
When: The Cambridge, Mountain View and Seattle sessions will be held July 13th – July 31st 2015, and Chicago and New York will be held July 20th – August 7th 2015.
Who: We are looking for students eager to spend a few weeks immersed in the Google life – tackling interesting technical problems, working collaboratively, and having fun. We want students to leave empowered, heading into their first year of college armed with a unique learning experience that can only be found at Google. The program is open to all qualified high school seniors, and is committed to addressing diversity in the field of computer science. Students who are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry are encouraged to apply.
