Google recently announced the winners of the Anita Borg Memorial Scholarships, awarded to women who are studying computer science and related fields.

In Canada, four women are receiving $5,000 scholarships, and 13 finalists will be given $1,000 awards. Students in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe are also eligible for the Anita Borg scholarships, which were established in 2003.
