Research Awards for International Professors in Computer Science and Engineering, 2012 USA
About Scholarship: The Faculty Research Awards Program, sometimes referred to as the Research Awards Program, supports academic research in computer science, engineering, and related fields. Through the program, we fund world-class research at top universities, facilitate interaction between Google and 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.
Study Subjects: Study Subjects are Computer Science, Engineering, and related fields
Course Level: Research
Scholarship By: Google
Duration: One year
Cover: Faculty members can apply for up to 150,000 USD in eligible expenses, but actual award amounts are frequently less than the full amount requested.
Eligibility: We accept applications from full-time professors at universities around the world. Our funding is focused on supporting PhD students, so we do allow applications from professors at research institutions that award research degrees to PhD students. We do not allow applications from professors, researchers, or faculty members at non-degree-granting research institutes. Researchers at such institutes who are also professors on the faculty of a university may apply through that university. -Our funding is structured as unrestricted gifts to universities. We 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 PI must apply in his or her capacity as a university professor and must be able to accept an award through that university.
Selection Criteria: We select Google Research Awards recipients through a thorough and competitive review process. All Research Awards proposals go through a review process that includes reviews from subject-matter experts across the company and committees led by some of Google’s top researchers. For details on our internal process, please see this post on the Google Research Blog from our Director of Education & University Relations.
