Details

Through the Fully Funded Women Techmakers Scholars Program, formerly the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship Program, Google is furthering Dr. Anita Borg’s vision of creating gender equality in the tech industry by encouraging women to excel as active participants and leaders in the field.

Dr. Anita Borg (1949–2003) believed that technology affects all aspects of our economic, political, social, and personal lives. A technology rebel with a cause, she fought tirelessly to ensure that technology’s impact would be a positive one. Dr. Anita Borg devoted her adult life to revolutionizing the way we think about technology as well as dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields.

Her combination of technical expertise and fearless vision continues to inspire and motivate countless women to become active participants and leaders in creating technology.

Google is proud to honor Anita’s memory and support women in technology with the following Women in STEM scholarship programs:

  • Women Techmakers Scholarship for computer science (APAC, EMEA, and NA)
  • Women Techmakers Scholarship for gaming in partnership with Stadia, Google’s all-new gaming platform (EMEA and NA)
