Google is partnering with Lime Connect, a nonprofit organization that supports students with disabilities to offer scholarships to students with disabilities who are pursuing university degrees in the field of computer science in the U.S. or Canada. The scholarship aims to inspire and help students become future leaders in computing and technology by breaking down the barriers that prevent them from entering these fields. Selected students will receive 10,000 USD (for those studying in the US) or 5,000 CAD (for those studying in Canada) for the 2014-2015 school year and will be invited to attend the Google Scholars’ Retreat in the summer of 2014.
