Google Conference and Travel Scholarships

At Google, we believe a diversity of attributes, experiences, and perspectives are needed to build tools that can change the world. Everyone deserves an opportunity to pursue connections in the industry, networking with peers, and a career path in technology.

  • Africa : An award in the range of 1,000 - 3,000 USD that will cover conference registration, travel, accommodation and related expenses. Scholarship amount depends on cost for the international conference.

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

  • Studying computer science, computer engineering, or a technical field related to the conference subject.
  • Have a paper accepted for presentation (oral or poster) in the main conference program 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. The paper must be accepted for full publication and preferably full oral presentation. Workshop papers will not be approved for travel scholarships.
  • Be the sole or joint first author of the accepted paper.
