Google Student Veterans Summit

Everyday, Googlers work on cool things that matter. We think student veterans should have the same opportunity. Each summer, Google sponsors the Google Student Veteran Summit, an all-expense paid, two-day event at our Mountain View headquarters. This year, up to 50 student veterans will be selected to attend the summit from July 27th to July 29th.

This Google Student Veteran Summit includes a professional development curriculum designed to help veterans brush up their business skills and ensure a smooth transition to the civilian workplace. Participants will also meet members of Google’s Veteran community and get an inside look at the company’s unique culture of impact and collaboration.
