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. The intent of the Awards is to support cutting-edge research in computer science, engineering, and related fields. Each funded project is assigned a Google sponsor. The role of the sponsor is to support the project by discussing research directions, engaging with professors and students, and overseeing collaboration between the project team at Google. Award recipients are encouraged to visit Google and give talks related to their work and meet with relevant research groups there.
