Google: RISE Awards

Posted by Google on September 22, 2014

Google RISE Awards support organizations that promote access to Computer Science (CS) education and give students aged 7-18 the opportunity to become creators — not just consumers — of tomorrow’s technological innovations. Google awards funding to, and partners with, organizations running programs that inspire, engage, and retain students on a long-term path in the field of computing. Maximum award: $50,000. Eligibility: organizations running a successful program in CS that they want to expand in terms of reach and depth of impact or that currently run a successful wide-reaching program in STEM that they want to grow to include CS. At a minimum, programs should have regional reach (city, county, or state) with the potential to scale nationally and collaborate internationally with similar organizations. Programs must target girls and/or underrepresented minority students up to the age of 18. Deadline: September 30, 2014.!overview
