Dr. Anita Borg devoted her life to revolutionizing the way we think about technology and dismantling the barriers that keep women and minorities from entering the computing and technology fields. In honor of Anita's vision, we established the Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship in 2004, awarding scholarships to women who share her passion for technology. Once again, we’re proud to announce the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship in Asia. The deadline to apply for the 2012 scholarship is June 3, 2012.
