CU-Boulder doctoral student Ifeyinwa Okoye has been named a winner of the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship ($10k and trip to Google in NYC this summer). She is one of 30 winners. Two other students - Allison Brown and Neeti Wagle - were among 30 students named finalists ($1K).
The scholars, who attend universities in the United States and Canada, will join the annual Google Scholars’ Retreat this summer in New York, where they will have the opportunity to attend tech talks on Google products, network with other scholars and Googlers, participate in developmental activities and sessions, and attend social activities. This year, the scholars will also have the opportunity to participate in a scholars’ edition of 24HoursOfGood, a hackathon in partnership with local non-profit organizations who work on education and STEM initiatives to make progress against a technical problem that is critical to their organization’s success.
