Generation Google Scholarship Helping Minorities Attend College to Excel in Technology

googleapple

We always talk about getting more minority youth interested in pursuing education in technology fields, but once the interest is there, then comes the issue of funding that interest. College tuition cost being high, is a definite understatement, but thanks to The Generation Google Scholarship , there is an opportunity to help pay for it.

Google is offering graduating high school seniors from an underrepresented group including African-Americans, Hispanic, women, etc. in computer science.

The scholarship is available to aspiring computer scientists planning to attend a 4-year university in the fall to study computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, or any related field.

Applicants should demonstrate leadership and a commitment to and passion for computer science and technology through involvement in their community. In addition, applicants should have a strong academic record, be from an underrepresented group in computer science and demonstrate financial need.

Winners will receive $10,000 each year for up to four years.

To apply for this scholarship and find more like this offered from Google go to their online application page. The Generation Google Scholarship is due on February 20, 2012.
