Focused Research Awards

As part of Google’s ongoing commitment to support ambitious research in computer science and engineering, we also support a small number of 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 awards are unrestricted gifts that typically last for two to three years, and the recipients have the advantage of access to Google tools, technologies, and expertise.

As Google’s areas of interest continue to grow and evolve, we will identify key areas of research that are of mutual interest to both university researchers and Google and provide Focused Research Awards to support collaborations in these areas.

Here are our current and past Focused Award recipients
