Congratulations & Welcome!

Hello and Congratulations on being a Google Scholar!

We are really looking forward to meeting such a talented group of young people. The purpose of the 2010 Scholars' Retreat is to celebrate your accomplishments and create an environment that encourages women and minorities to pursue an education and careers in the computer science field.

This site houses all the information that you will need to get ready for your visit to the Googleplex. Please explore the site, check back for any updates, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Also be sure to join our group on Facebook.

Again we are very excited that you will all be joining us this summer, and are looking forward to an amazing Retreat.

Scholars Who Will be In Attendence:

Anita Borg Scholars
The Google Anita Borg Scholarship was established in 2004 to honor the legacy of Dr. Anita Borg ( and her efforts to encourage women to pursue careers in computer science and technology.

Since first awarding the scholarship to 8 women in 2004, the Google Anita Borg Scholarship program has expanded to include Anita Borg Scholarship programs for women studying computer science in Australia, Canada, Europe, the Middle East & North Africa, and New Zealand.

AISES Scholars
AISES' own scholarship program was established in 1983 in memory of A.T. Anderson (Mohawk), a chemical engineer who founded AISES with six other American Indian scientists. Scholarships are awarded to members of AISES who are American Indian/Alaskan Native college students pursuing academic programs in the sciences, engineering, medicine, natural resources, and math.

The Google AISES scholarship awards AISES students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in computer science or computer engineering.
UNCF Scholars
The Google-UNCF Scholarship is awarded annually to a group of African-American students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in computer science or computer engineering. When it comes to higher education for promising scholars, we don't want anything to stand in the way. That's why Google is proud to support the work of UNCF.
Google is committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their talents by providing scholarships and retreats for computer science students.

HCF Scholars
Hispanic College Fund Scholarships are given to Hispanic students who demonstrate both academic excellence and financial need. The Google HCF Scholarship Program offers funds to students studying computer science or computer engineering.

Lime Scholars
The most recent addition to our scholarship programs is the Google Lime Scholarship for Students with Disabilities. We're partnering with Lime to offer scholarships to students with disabilities who are pursuing university degrees in the field of computer science in Canada or the U.S.
Lime is a not-for-profit organization that brings together global corporations and people with disabilities, bringing to light an untapped source of talent.
