Women Techmakers Scholars will each receive a cash award for the 2017-2018 academic year. A group of female undergraduate and graduate students will be chosen from the applicant pool, and scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of each candidate's impact on diversity, demonstrated leadership and academic background. All scholarship recipients will be invited to attend the annual Women Techmakers Scholars' Retreat in one Google's Asia Pacific offices in 2017 to connect with fellow scholars, network with Googlers and participate in a number of workshops.

Professional development and community outreach opportunities will continue to be offered after the retreat. As a Women Techmakers Scholar, you will join a long term community of scholars program participants designed to provide a forum to share resources, support other women in tech and collaborate on projects to make continued impact.

The deadline to apply is May 22, 2017.
