Dr. Anita Borg (1949 - 2003) devoted her adult life to revolutionizing the
way we think about technology and dismantling barriers that keep women and
minorities from entering computing and technology fields. Her combination
of technical expertise and fearless vision continues to inspire and
motivate countless women to become active participants and leaders in
creating technology.

As part of Google's ongoing commitment to furthering Anita's vision, we
are pleased to announce the 2006 Google Anita Borg Scholarship, through
which we hope to encourage women to excel in computing and technology and
become active role models and leaders.

Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates' academic
background and demonstrated leadership. A group of female undergraduate
and graduate student finalists will be chosen from the applicant pool. The
scholarship recipients, selected from the finalists, will each receive a
$10,000 scholarship for the 2006-2007 academic year.

All finalists will be invited to visit Google headquarters in Mountain
View, California in April 2006 for a networking retreat in which they can
meet and share their experiences. The retreat will include workshops with
a series of speakers, panelists, breakout sessions and social activities.
