The Google Research Scholar Program

The Google Research Scholar Program

The Research Scholar Program seeks to encourage early-career professors conducting research in fields relevant to Google. The Research Scholar Program offers unlimited grants to support research at institutions around the world, with a focus on sponsoring world-class research conducted by early-career professors.

Award information for the Google Research Scholar Program

We welcome proposals from professors worldwide who teach at universities and match the eligibility criteria. We believe that this initiative will facilitate cooperation with new teachers and stimulate the establishment of long-term relationships.

Awards are distributed as unrestricted donations to the university and are not meant to cover overhead or indirect costs. They are intended to be used during the academic year in which the prize is granted to assist the professor’s research endeavors.
