Google Student Veterans of America Scholarship
As part of their commitment to military veterans and to inspire and help students become future leaders in computing and technology, Google established the Google SVA Scholarship in partnership with Student Veterans of America. The scholarship provides assistance to student veterans who are pursuing university degrees in the field of computer science in the U.S. Selected students will receive 10,000 USD for the academic year and will be invited to attend the Google Scholars’ Retreat in the summer. The Scholars' Retreat provides an important networking opportunity for top students from all over the United States and Canada to meet with each other and with Google engineers in a personable, fun environment.
