Access to knowledge is our passion. When it comes to higher education for promising scholars, we do not want anything to stand in the way. That is why we are pleased to announce the Google Europe & Israel Scholarship for Students with Disabilities. Google is committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their talents by providing scholarships and networking retreats for computer science students with disabilities. This scholarship aims to help dismantle barriers that keep students with disabilities from entering computing, encourage them to excel in their studies and become active role models and leaders in creating technology.

Multiple scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates’ academic performance and demonstrated passion for computer science. A group of Bachelors, Masters, and PhD students will be chosen from the applicant pool. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of researchers and engineers.

The scholarship recipients will each receive a EUR 7,000 (or equivalent) scholarship for the 2013/2014 academic year.

In June 2013, all scholarship recipients will be invited to visit a Google office in Europe for an all-expenses-paid networking retreat. It will include workshops with a series of speakers, panels, breakout sessions and social activities, and will provide an opportunity to meet and share experiences.

Eligibility requirements

Candidates must be:

  • A student enrolled in a Bachelors, Masters or PhD programme (or equivalent) in 2013/2014.
  • Enrolled at a University in Europe or in Israel. Citizens, permanent residents, and international students are eligible to apply.
  • Studying Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Informatics, or a closely related technical field.
  • A person with a disability, mental health or other long term health condition (including dyslexia, dyspraxia, visual impairment, hearing impairment, diabetes, epilepsy, depression, anxiety disorders, and any other physical or mental impairments or health conditions).
