Awards to USA, Canada, and International IHE permanent faculty members to support academic research in engineering, computer science, or related fields. Funds are intended to support one graduate student for one year of work on a research project in the above fields.
Google is committed to developing new technologies to help users find and use information. While they do significant in-house research and engineering, they also maintain strong ties with academic institutions worldwide pursuing innovative research in core areas relevant to Google products and services. As part of that vision, the Google Faculty Research Awards Program aims to recognize and support world-class, permanent faculty pursuing cutting-edge research in areas of mutual interest.
The goal is to identify and strengthen long-term collaborative relationships with faculty working on problems that will impact how future generations use technology. Google Faculty Research Awards are structured as seed funding to support one graduate student for one year and are awarded as an unrestricted gift. The award is highly competitive - only 15% of applicants receive funding - and each proposal goes through a rigorous Google-wide review process.
Applicants will be asked to categorize their proposals into one of the following broad Computer Science research areas of interest to Google, a list of which can be found at the URL for Full Text below.

Faculty Research Awards are designed to be in an amount approximately equivalent to the amount necessary to support one graduate student for one year. Google expects 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 (1,500 USD for US universities, 3,000 USD for universities outside the US).
