We are now accepting applications for the Generation Google Scholarship and Computer Science Summer Institute. Read more below and apply today!

Computer Science Summer Institute

Google is invested in increasing the enrollment and retention of computer science students. With this in mind, we’re hosting our eighth annual Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI), a three-week introduction to computer science for graduating high school seniors with a passion for technology – especially students from historically underrepresented groups in the field.

  • Day-camp sessions are for students within a specified mileage distance from the respective day-camp offices (Chicago, IL = 30 miles). Students will be provided with a travel stipend and expected to commute into the respective Google offices for each day of CSSI.
  • Day-camp dates are for Chicago areJuly 20th – Aug 7th

CSSI is not your average summer camp. It’s an intensive, interactive, hands-on and fun program that seeks to inspire the tech leaders and innovators of tomorrow by supporting the study of computer science, software engineering, and other closely related subjects. As CSSI students, you will learn programming fundamentals directly from Google engineers, get an inside look at some of Google’s most exciting, emerging technologies, and even design and develop your very own application with fellow participants that you will showcase to Googlers in local offices.

We are looking for students eager to spend a few weeks immersed in 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 found at Google. The program is open to all qualified high school seniors, 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.
