We aspire to make Google an institution that makes the world a better place.”Larry Page CEO & Founder, Alphabet Inc.
New York is our second largest office after our headquarters in Mountain View, California. It’s our biggest engineering office outside of California and the largest Google sales office in the world. Engineers in New York work on more than 100 projects, including Search, Ads, Maps, Docs, Drive, YouTube, Infrastructure, and Research.
Google in the community
We’re committed to playing a positive role in each of the communities in which we live and work. Since 2011, we’ve awarded $166 million in grants and employee-matched giving to New York nonprofits and schools in areas that we’re passionate about, including science and technology education, economic opportunity, and access to the Internet.
Google for education
We believe that every student and every educator, in every classroom, deserves the tools and skills that set them up for success in building the future they want for themselves. That’s why we’re committed to supporting students, partnering with educators, building products, and making impactful investments that help enhance and expand education through technology.
Because the importance of, and real world demand for, digital skills is only increasing, every student from grade school through grad school should have the opportunity to explore computer science and engineering. Whether or not they choose to pursue it, they should have the chance to be the creators—not just the consumers—of technology.
We work to positively impact the world through our products, programs, people, and philanthropy. Our local support for education efforts includes:
- Awarding scholarships to aspiring computer scientists from underrepresented groups—in 2017 to seven students to attend City University of New York, Brooklyn College, Columbia University, Devry College of New York, Fordham University, Hofstra University, New York University, and Rochester institute of Technology.
- More than $12.4 million in Ph.D. fellowships and Faculty Research Awards to New York colleges and universities since 2006 through Research at Google.
