"Google’s education and scholarship programs aim to inspire and help students become future leaders in computing and technology by breaking down the barriers that prevent them from entering these fields. Partnering with Student Veterans of America allows us to support student veterans in their academic careers and beyond. Google is proud to support the veteran community through the Google SVA - Scholarship." -Sarah Safir, Specialist, Tech Student Development Programs at Google.
