Deadline to apply: December 4, 2016.

"The Google Scholar's Retreat excited me about the company, and by the end of an awesome few days I knew I wanted to come back to Google as an intern the following summer. I did - twice - and will return full time upon graduation next summer!"

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 support the work of Lime Connect since 2008.

Scholars will be invited to attend the annual Google Scholars' Retreat at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California, in Summer, 2017.

Candidates will also be considered for software engineering internship opportunities with Google.
