GOOGLE CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR AFRICAN STUDENTS WHO ARE IN NEED OF CONFERENCE TRAVEL FUNDS

Apply for the Google Conference Scholarships

DEADLINE: Ongoing

Google believes that a diversity of attributes, experiences, and perspectives are needed to build tools that can change the world. Google also believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to pursue connections in the industry, networking with peers, and a career path in technology. To help break down the barriers that prevent underrepresented groups in technology and business from attending leading conferences, Google is excited to offer Google Conference Scholarships for selected conferences in the tech industry and related fields.

Eligibility

To be eligible for a scholarship to attend an international conference, applicants must:

  • Be a full-time student enrolled with a recognized university in Africa who is in need of conference travel funds.
  • Have a paper accepted at a top-tier computer science conference. We prefer to support conferences in research areas where Google has a strong interest. Please visit research.google.com for a list of areas.
  • Be the sole or joint first author of the accepted paper.

To apply

Please submit this form by the deadline for the conference that you wish to attend. **Given the shift to virtual mode for conferences, we are currently accepting applications to cover conference fees.

Claim process

Google review applications on a rolling basis, all year round, therefore eligible applicants will get their reply around four weeks of applying. Once approved for a travel grant, the funds will be paid to the applicant’s university and the student may claim expenses using regular university procedures.

For any questions, please reach out to research-africa@google.com.
