Google Research: Faculty Research Awards 2016

The Faculty Research Awards Program supports academic research in computer science, engineering, and related fields.

Google will facilitate interaction with academia, and support projects whose output will be made openly available to the research community.

Awards are structured as unrestricted gifts to universities and are designed to support roughly the cost of one graduate student for one year of work.

Funding & Duration

Faculty Research Awards are designed to be in an amount approximately equivalent to the amount necessary to support 1 graduate student for 1 year.

While costs differ by university and by region, the median award amount is around USD $50,000 to $60,000  (approx. AUD $65,000 to  $78,000).


Each Principal Investigator on a proposal must be a permanent faculty at a university or a degree-granting research institution.
