Google RISE Awards

Offered by Google.org

The Google RISE Awards is an annual grant program for informal education organizations around the world that promote computer science for K-12/pre-university age youth. We aspire for students to be creators not just consumers of tomorrow’s technology, and that includes students from all backgrounds. This is why our efforts emphasize participation from girls, youth in low-income communities, and minorities who have historically been underrepresented in the field of computer science.
