Are you a woman studying computer science in the U.S., Canada, Europe or Australia?

Applications for the 2008 Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship, which recognizes the achievements and contributions of women in computer science, are due this week.

Up to 20 scholars will receive a $10,000 scholarship for the 2008-09 academic year, and an additional group of finalists will receive a $1000 award.

Recipients will be invited to the Annual Scholars Retreat at Googles headquarters in April 2008, where they will have the opportunity to network with women in the computing industry through a series of panel discussions, breakout sessions, and social activities.

Who can apply?

Scholarships are awarded to female undergraduates and graduate students on the basis of the candidates academic background and demonstrated leadership in the field.

The program is open to women pursuing computer science studies in the U.S., Europe, Australia and Canada, with plans for expansion to Brazil later this year.
