Update: Part two is published now. Check it out here.

I remember it was mid-March, 2016, when I first heard about this scholarship from Google, launched in the memory of Venkat Panchapakesan (a Google VP who led engineering at YouTube). Essentially, they look for students enrolled in Indian universities, who are passionate about computer science and engineering (I would highly recommend reading the other requirements and objectives of this scholarship to those interested).
