Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Awards to USA, Canada, and International faculty members at IHEs to support academic research in engineering, computer science, or related fields. The purpose of funding is to support early career researchers for one year of work on a research project in the above fields. Funding is intended to develop collaborations with new professors and encourage the formation of long-term relationships.

Awards are disbursed as unrestricted gifts to the university. They are intended for use during the academic year in which the award is provided to support the professor’s research efforts.

Supporting cutting-edge research

Proposals are selected through an internal review process and will be notified of their awards within 4 months of the initial submission. Applicants are asked to categorize their proposals into one of the following broad Computer Science and related research areas of interest to Google:

  • Algorithms and optimization
  • Augmented and virtual reality
  • Cooling and power
  • Geo/maps
  • Health research
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Information retrieval and real time content
  • Machine learning and data mining
  • Machine perception
  • Machine translation
  • Mobile
  • Natural language processing
  • Networking
  • Privacy
  • Quantum computing
  • Security
  • Software engineering and programming languages
  • Speech
  • Structured data, extraction, semantic graph, and database management
  • Systems (hardware and software)

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.

Eligibility criteria
- A full-time assistant, associate, or full professor at a university or degree-granting research institution.

- Post doctoral staff can only serve as a co-PI, not a primary PI.
Applicants must have received their PhD within seven years of submission (e.g. applicant in 2021 must have received PhD in 2014 or later).

Google considers exceptions for applicants who have been teaching seven years or fewer and had delays, such as working in industry, parental leave, leave of absence, etc. This exception request can be documented on the application.

- Applicants can submit one application per round.
Faculty can only serve as a PI or Co-PI per round. Applicants cannot serve on two separate proposals.

Applicants can apply a maximum of 3 times within the 7 years post-PhD.

-Awards are not intended for overhead or indirect costs.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications will be accepted from November 3, 2022 to December 1, 2022 at 11:59:59 pm UTC.

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.
