GTAC Diversity Scholarship

by Lesley Katzen on behalf of the GTAC Diversity Committee

We are committed to increasing diversity at GTAC, and we believe the best way to do that is by making sure we have a diverse set of applicants to speak and attend. As part of that commitment, we are excited to announce that we will be offering travel scholarships this year.
Travel scholarships will be available for selected applicants from traditionally underrepresented groups in technology.

To be eligible for a grant to attend GTAC, applicants must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older.
  • Be from a traditionally underrepresented group in technology.
  • Work or study in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, or a technical field related to software testing.
  • Be able to attend core dates of GTAC, November 15th - 16th 2016 in Sunnyvale, CA.


To apply:
Please fill out the following form to be considered for a travel scholarship.
The deadline for submission is June 1st.  Scholarship recipients will be announced on June 30th. If you are selected, we will contact you with information on how to proceed with booking travel.


What the scholarship covers:
Google will pay for standard coach class airfare for selected scholarship recipients to San Francisco or San Jose, and 3 nights of accommodations in a hotel near the Sunnyvale campus. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for GTAC attendees and speakers on both days of the conference. We will also provide a $50.00 gift card for other incidentals such as airport transportation or meals. You will need to provide your own credit card to cover any hotel incidentals.


Google is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive conference experience for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found at:
