Anita Borg Scholarship Announcement

The Google 2005 Anita Borg Scholarships

Dr. Anita Borg (1949 - 2003) devoted her adult life to revolutionizing the way we think about technology and dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields. Her capacity to mix technical expertise and fearless vision inspired, motivated and moved countless women to embrace the technological revolution as active participants and leaders.

As part of Google's ongoing commitment to furthering Anita's vision by encouraging women to pursue careers in computing and technology, we're pleased to announce four $10,000 scholarships for female students in the computer sciences during the 2005-2006 academic year. Two scholarships will be awarded to undergraduates, and two to graduate degree (master's or Ph.D. level) candidates. These scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates' academic background, their responses to short essay questions and letters of recommendation.
