Google Lime Scholarship Program

Recipients of the 2017 Google Lime Scholarship will each receive a scholarship for the 2017-2018 academic year. Selected students will also be invited to attend the annual Google Scholars’ Retreat at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California, in 2017. Candidates will also be considered for software engineering internship opportunities with Google.  Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates’ academic background and demonstrated passion for computer science – $10,000 for those studying in the US and $5,000 for those studying in Canada (based on tuition costs).
