The 2013 Google Lime Scholarship for Students with Disabilities 
An Exciting Opportunity for University Students Pursuing Degrees in
Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Closely Related Fields,
The Google Lime Scholarship for Students with Disabilities Provides
US$10,000 or C$5,000, Internship Consideration and a Scholars Retreat
at the Googleplex in Mountain View; Deadline to Apply: February 18,
2013 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/02/13 --  "I had a fantastic time
at the Scholars Retreat -- meeting programming legends, seeing the
over-the-top Googleplex and developing friendships with other
students who are just like me -- thank you for a great experience,
and a great scholarship!"  
Access to knowledge is our thing. When it comes to higher education
for promising scholars, we don't want anything to stand in the way.
That's why Google is proud to partner with Lime Connect, and is
committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of
their talents by providing scholarships and networking retreats for
computer science students with disabilities.  
Recipients of the Google Lime Scholarship will each receive a
scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. Selected students will
also be invited to attend the annual Google Scholars Retreat at the
Googleplex in Mountain View, California, in 2013, and all candidates
will be considered for internship opportunities. Scholarships will be
awarded based on the strength of candidates' academic background and
demonstrated passion for computer science -- $10,000 for those
studying in the US and $5,000 for those studying in Canada (based on
tuition costs).

--  Pursuing a Computer Science or Computer Engineering degree, or a
    degree in a closely related technical field (such as software
    engineering or electrical engineering with a heavy computer science
    course load)
