BOLD Immersion

  • Overview

    The Building Opportunities for Leadership and Development (BOLD) Immersion program gives students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a culture where great minds, cutting-edge technology and smart business intersect to make a difference--each and every day.

    Selected students will receive all-expenses-paid travel to one of Google's headquarters for up to one week in August. The BOLD Immersion program provides:

    • A rare glimpse into the business side of the technology industry
    • A chance to grow your peer network
    • Exposure and insight into Google’s internship program and non-technical career opportunities

    The BOLD Immersion program is open to all higher education students, and is committed to addressing diversity in our company and the technology industry. Students who are members of a group that is historically underrepresented in this field are encouraged to apply. We offer the Google BOLD Immersion Program in multiple regions around the world. Please note that program dates and duration vary depending on location.

    Looking for the BOLD Internship?

    The Building Opportunities for Leadership and Development (BOLD) Internship Program is a paid summer internship for rising undergraduate seniors that are interested in working in technology and full-time opportunities at Google. We’ve designed our program to expose historically underrepresented students in this field to career opportunities in the industry. Students from all schools, and students who identify with a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry, including but not limited to Black, Hispanic, Native American, students with disabilities, and veterans, are encouraged to apply.
