Hello from Google
Autumn has arrived, which means it’s time for pumpkins, Artificial Intelligence, and scholarship deadlines!
Are you a current undergraduate or graduate student studying at an accredited university in the United States or Canada for the next academic year (2021-2022)? If you answered yes, make sure to check below for information on Generation Google Scholarships.
We invite you to be a part of Google’s mission to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful by helping create artificial intelligence (AI) that better understands language and cultures through our Crowdsourcing community.

Google is not affiliated with the GEMs Fellowship program.
Helping Googlers tackle student loan debt
Though student loan debt is an issue globally, Americans in particular face an enormous student loan deficit—$1.5 trillion dollars, twice what it was a decade ago. This burden disproportionately affects women and communities of color. We’re introducing a student loan repayment program for all Googlers in the U.S. Starting in 2021, Google will match up to $2,500 per Googler per year in student loan payments to help them pay off their student loans faster, allowing them to save money to use in other ways, whether it’s purchasing a new home, starting a family, or investing in a 401(k).
Change starts at home. We’re hoping this student loan repayment program gives our workforce some relief from student loans and helps them build more financial stability over the long term. To learn more, read the full blog post here.
