The scholarship, which is funded by the US government, was launched by Google Canada on Thursday, and is awarded to students who have completed a minimum of 20 units of postgraduate study.
It will be distributed through Google Canada’s Google Canada Scholarships Program.
In Canada, the NationalMerit scholarship has been offered for five years and was launched in 2017.
It is based on the US National Merits Test and is given to the first-time, first-class student who has completed at least 20 units, as well as those who have taken a minimum number of units and completed a degree or professional degree.
The NationalMerit scholarships were first introduced in the UK in 2011 and were also available in the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, and Austria.
The US version of the scholarship is based upon the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Health Research (NCHER) National Merited Scholar, and has been available since 2016.
The Canadian NationalMerit Scholarship will award a student from Canada the following: • One year of post-graduate study in the sciences and humanities, including up to 30 units of undergraduate work or up to 40 units of graduate work.• One additional year of up to 20 units in post-grad undergraduate work.
This scholarship will be available to students in Canada from October 1, 2019.
• Up to $5,000 for travel expenses to and from the US.
The Google Canada Scholarship is one of several initiatives aimed at boosting the number of people who have access to research and technical skills.
Google is a US company with more than $20 billion in annual revenue, and its research has been recognised by several prestigious awards.
According to Google Canada, it has funded more than 7,500 scholarships across the US and Canada since the program was launched.
Google has been in the spotlight over its use of self-driving cars, which are considered a major contributor to the US economy.
The company has also been criticised for its decision to hire a robot to replace a former executive at its robotics division.
