For those of you who know high school seniors who would be at all interested,
these are some great opportunities and what I consider as one of the reason I'm
in engineering/tech :)

Hi CSSI alumni,

Happy (belated) new year! Hoping that you had a wonderful holiday season.

We wanted to pass along the exciting news that our *2014 **CSSI/Generation
Google application is live
<>*! Students can
find the application on both our Generation Google
program page<>

As our CSSI alumni, we would love your help spreading the word. Please feel
free to pass along the message below to:

   - High school seniors you know who are considering studying computer
   science or closely related fields
   - Colleagues you may know who work with programs that target high school

As you well know, it is our hope that these programs can help provide the
support some students need to ensure a commitment to CS as they start their
undergraduate careers.

Should they have any questions, please encourage them to email or

Thanks in advance for your support!

Sarah, on behalf of the CSSI team


Subject: Thinking of studying computer science? Apply to Google’s Computer
Science Summer Institute and Generation Google Scholarship!

At Google, we believe information should be universally accessible. Our
education and scholarship programs aim to inspire and help students become
future leaders in computing and technology by breaking down the barriers
that prevent them from entering these fields.  We are now accepting
applications for the Generation Google Scholarship and Computer Science
Summer Institute.  Read more below and apply

Generation Google Scholarship

The Generation Google
established to help aspiring computer scientists excel in technology
and become leaders in the field. Selected students will receive 10,000 USD
(for those studying in the US) or 5,000 CAD (for those studying in Canada)
for the 2014-2015 school year. As part of the scholarship, current high
school seniors who are entering their first year of university in 2014-2015
will be required to attend Google’s Computer Science Summer Institute
(CSSI)<>in the summer of 2014.

and to apply!

Computer Science Summer Institute

Google is invested in increasing the enrollment and retention of computer
science students. With this in mind, we’re hosting our seventh annual Computer
Science Summer Institute (CSSI) <>, a
three-week introduction to computer science for graduating high school
seniors with a passion for technology —especially students from
historically underrepresented groups in the field.

Up to 90 aspiring computer scientists will be selected to attend one of our
all-expenses-paid CSSI sessions:

Session 1 will take place in Mountain View, California from July 6 - July
26, 2014

Session 2 will take place in Cambridge, Massachusetts from July 6 - July
26, 2014

Session 3 will take place in Seattle, Washington From July 27 - August 16,

CSSI is not your average summer camp. It's an intensive, interactive,
hands-on and fun program that seeks to inspire the tech leaders and
innovators of tomorrow by supporting the study of computer science,
software engineering and other closely related subjects. As CSSI students,
you will learn programming fundamentals directly from Google engineers, get
an inside look at some of Google's most exciting, emerging technologies,
and even design and develop your very own application with fellow
participants that you will showcase to Googlers in local offices.

We are looking for students eager to spend a few weeks living the Google
life – tackling interesting technical problems, working collaboratively and
having fun. We want students to leave empowered, heading into their first
year of college armed with a unique learning experience that can only be
had at Google. The program is open to all qualified high school seniors,
and is committed to addressing diversity in the field of computer science.
Students who are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented
in the technology industry are encouraged to apply.

Please visit for more information and to apply!

Application deadline: March 3, 2014. Final decisions will be announced by
May 1st.
