The Google Research Awards for Latin America are one-year awards structured as unrestricted gifts to support the work of world-class permanent faculty members and their students who are pursuing cutting-edge research in specific fields related to Computer Science at top universities in Latin America. We will be funding $550,000 US dollars to be distributed among the selected researchers each year. Recipients are selected through a comprehensive internal review process and notified of their awards within 6-8 weeks after the deadline (dates to be announced). Each proposal should involve a single faculty and a single student, either at PhD or MS level. The grants will be awarded for a period of one year with the possibility of annual renewal up to a limit of two years in total for master students and three years for PhD students.
