About the program:
Google Research Awards are one-year awards structured as unrestricted gifts to universities to support the work of world-class full-time faculty members at top universities around the world. Awarded projects are usually highly technical.
Please visit the program website for further information, including previous winners, proposal guidance/format instruction and FAQ.
Although a “Google champion” or “sponsor” is not required, it is beneficial.
Proposals are considered on the following topics:
- Algorithms and optimization
- Computational neuroscience
- Cooling and power
- Digital Media Processing
- Human-computer interaction
- Information retrieval and real time content
- Machine learning and data mining
- Machine perception
- Machine translation
- Natural language processing
- Physical Interfaces and immersive experiences
- Recommendation systems
- Social Signal Processing
- Software engineering and programming languages
- Structured data, extraction, semantic graph and database management
- Systems (hardware and software)
N.B.: Proposals must not contain confidential or proprietary information.
N.B.: Strict formatting and/or page limitations apply!
Awards generally support basic expenses for one student for one year, so budgets are frequently reduced to this level of support, ($40,000-$70,000). The maximum amount a Principal Investigator can request is $150,000.
Eligible costs: PhD (salary + tuition), PhD conference travel ($3,000 max).
Ineligible costs: Principal Investigator salaries, other researcher salaries, indirect costs.
Sponsor deadline: Saturday, 7 October 2017 (11:59pm PDT). Submission is online.
Please inform your Assistant Dean if you plan to apply.
