2012 Google GRAD CS Forum (deadline Sunday 11/13/2011)
By Melinda Rose
Join us for the 2012 Google GRAD CS Forum!
As part of Google’s ongoing commitment to encouraging students of underrepresented backgrounds in technology to pursue graduate study, we are pleased to host the 2012 Google Graduate Researchers in Academia of Diverse backgrounds (GRAD) CS Forum. This forum will bring together students who are historically underrepresented in the field to connect with one another and with Google.
The Google GRAD CS Forum will include technical talks from established researchers – both from Google and universities – and a unique occasion to build and strengthen networks with other emerging researchers. Students will also enjoy tours of the Googleplex, have the opportunity to meet with Google engineers in their focus areas, and have fun exploring the San Francisco Bay Area.
- be a computer science (or related technical discipline) graduate student currently enrolled in a Masters or PhD program at a university in North America
- demonstrate academic excellence and leadership in the computing field
- maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.3 on a 4.0 scale or 4.3 on a 5.0 scale or equivalent in their current program
Google engineers will select up to 75 attendees based on each applicant’s academic and technical achievements. Evidence of academic achievement and leadership experience should be evident from the resume.
Recipients will be notified by mid-December via e-mail and asked to confirm attendance.
