The Google Lime Scholarship provides funding and networking retreats for computer science students with disabilities. Each recipient receives a scholarship for the 2019-2020 academic year. Selected students will also be invited to attend the annual Google Scholars' Retreat at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California, in Summer 2019. 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 a 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).
