High school seniors in the US and Canada interested in pursuing computer science – Apply to CSSI today!
March 13th, 2012 | Published in Google Student Blog
Google is invested in increasing the enrollment and retention of Computer Science students, particularly those who are historically underrepresented in the field. The study of Computer Science can be challenging and fun, and Google wants to inspire these students – the innovators of the future – to become active participants and leaders in creating technology.
With this in mind, Google has created the Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI). Up to 60 aspiring computer scientists will be selected to attend one of the all-expenses-paid CSSI sessions at either Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California or Google's office in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our first session will take place from June 24 - July 12, 2012, while the second will take place from July 22 - August 10, 2012. This special institute will include an interactive and collaborative CS curriculum, as well as a unique residential experience in which students can build a network with other attendees. They will meet alumni from their schools and other Google engineers while immersing themselves in daily life at Google. Students will also enjoy technical talks by Googlers, lectures by guests from across the technology industry, and local area social activities.
Would you like to benefit from the technical curriculum and the networking opportunities of the CSSI? We are looking for students eager to spend a few weeks living the Google life – tackling interesting technical problems, working collaboratively and having fun. We want students to leave empowered, heading into their first year of college armed with a unique learning experience that can only be had at Google.
The program is open to all qualified high school seniors (students must be planning to attend a university in the US or Canada), and is committed to addressing diversity in the field of Computer Science. Students who are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry are encouraged to apply.

Application deadline: Friday, April 20, 2012 11:59 p.m. PST. Note -- select students will receive a short technical interview via telephone.
