The newest addition to the Google scholarships family is the Google Student Veterans of America (SVA) Scholarship. Google has partnered with the nonprofit Student Veterans of America to support their mission of providing veterans with the resources, support and advocacy they need to succeed in higher education and throughout their careers.
Incredibly, two of the eight winners of inaugural Google SVA Scholarships are UW CSE students: undergraduate student Mike Hotan (USA Special Forces 2008-present) and graduate student Jim Youngquist (USAF, 2002-08). (Interesting aside: Jim is currently Mike’s TA in the undergraduate Operating Systems course.)
Congratulations to Mike and Jim!
