The goal of the Google Lime Scholarship is to encourage and assist students in overcoming the obstacles that impede them from pursuing careers in computing and technology.
In order to support university students with disabilities in achieving their academic goals in the field of computer science, Google has teamed with Lime Connect, a nonprofit that supports students with disabilities while they seek education and potential jobs. For the current academic year, chosen students will receive 5,000 CAD or 10,000 USD, depending on where they are studying.
