Access to knowledge is Google's thing. When it comes to higher education for promising scholars, Google doesn't want anything to stand in the way. That's why Google is proud to support the work of Lime Connect in the Google Lime Scholarship.

Google is committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their talents by providing scholarships and networking retreats for computer science students with disabilities. International students with disabilities studying at universities in the US or Canada are encouraged to apply.
