BOLD Immersion

The US 2018 BOLD Immersion application is now open through Thursday, February 1st, 2018

At Google, we believe in jumping right in to find solutions to the challenges that our business and our users face. 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.
