FWIW, Google has a long (by Internet time) history of providing
generous support for collaborative work related to the Web.
If they want to help increase attendance by paying the relatively
small attendance fee, that's a good thing.  Directly refunding the
costs (or paying a lump sum on their behalf) is far more efficient
than setting up a neutral scholarship grant process.

BTW, I'd support it just as much (if not more) if Google was
hand-picking the people to send, rather than being a first-come,
first-serve grant: exposure to other W3C folks in a non-email,
non-IRC format can only be helpful.
