As part of Google’s ongoing commitment to support ambitious research in computer science and engineering, we occasionally support multi-year projects through our Focused Research Awards program. The awards are for research in areas of study that are of key interest to Google as well as the research community. These unrestricted grants are for two to three years, and the recipients have the advantage of access to Google tools, technologies, and expertise.
Unlike our Faculty Research Awards program, we do not accept unsolicited applications for Focused Research Awards. As we continue to identify key areas of research that are of mutual interest to both university researchers and Google, we will provide awards to support these collaborations. Please see our FAQs for more information.
