Alexandra Ferrerón has been awarded a Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship.

Our visiting student Alexandra Ferrerón (from the University of Zaragoza) has been awarded with a Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship (Europe, Middle East, and Africa). Dr. Anita Borg devoted her adult life to revolutionizing the way we think about technology and dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields. This scholarship aims to continue Dr. Anita Borg's vision, by encouraging women to pursue technical degrees. Each scholar receives €7,000 (or equivalent), and scholars and finalists are invited to a Retreat, which this year took place at the Google offices in Zurich, from June 30th to July 3rd.
