Estimated Size of Grant:

Googel provides support up to $60,000 USD depending on the cost of student tuition on a regional basis.

Term of Contract:

Faculty may apply up to a maximum of 3 times within the 7 years they received their PhD.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Institutions:
-Google accepts applications from permanent faculty at universities around the world. Funding is focused on supporting the faculty’s research. Google does not allow applications from non-degree-granting research institutions.
-Since funding is structured as unrestricted gifts to degree-granting Universities, Google cannot process awards to other institutions (e.g. not-for-profits institutions, hospitals, non-degree-granting research institutes, etc) even if they are affiliated with a University. A Principal Investigator must apply in his or her capacity as a university professor and must be able to accept an award through that University.

Principal Investigator Requirements:
-Global faculty who have received their PhD less than 7 years from submission from degree-granting institutions who are doing research within fields relevant to Google.
-An applicant may only serve as Principal Investigator or co-Principal Investigator on one proposal per round.
-Google understands that titles may differ globally. In order for someone without the title of professor to apply, he or she must be a permanent faculty member at an eligible institution and serve as a formal advisor to masters or PhD students. Google may, at their discretion, provide funding for Principal Investigators who advise undergraduate students at colleges that do not award advanced degrees.

-Awards are not intended for overhead or indirect costs.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for applications is 11:59 PM PT Wednesday, December 2.

Applicants are notified within 4 months of submission.

Faculty can receive a Research Scholar award only once. Previous Faculty Research Award recipients are still eligible to receive a Research Scholar award.
