The wonderfully-named Dr. Anita Borg (1949 – 2003) was a rebel with a cause: ensuring that technology itself has positive outcomes, and dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields. Today the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology carries on her vision. And because Google shares that passion, They are pleased to sponsor the 2006 Anita Borg Scholarship program ,inspired by the past scholarship recipients — and in hopes of finding more, the program is expanded this year to accept applications from students entering their senior year of undergraduate study as well as those enrolled in a graduate program. Last year 23 scholarships have ben awarded; this year wil be more.
Tell your friends, or apply yourself – the deadline is January 20.
