Google’s Faculty Research Awards program is focused on funding world-class technical research in Computer Science, Engineering, and related fields.
The awards aim to identify and strengthen long-term collaborative relationships with faculty working on problems that will impact how future generations use technology.
Funding & Duration
Faculty Research Awards are designed to be in an amount approximately equivalent to the amount necessary to support one graduate student for one year. It is anticipated that most budgets for the Research Awards will be limited to the cost of one PhD student for one year (defined as salary plus tuition, or research salary in regions where PhD tuition is covered through other means) as well as modest conference travel for the student – USD $3,000, (approx. AUD $4,200) – for universities outside the US.
Both institutions and individual Principal Investigators are eligible to apply.
Graduates wishing to receive the award must have a Google employee to champion their proposal.
