Google was born in Stanford's Computer Science department, so strong relationships with universities and research institutions are in our DNA. To cultivate these collaborations, we administer a variety of programs that provide resources and support to the academic and external research communities.
Google supports and participates in the academic research community through meaningful engagement with university faculty. Our ongoing programs provide funding for academic research, as well as enable faculty to collaborate with Google researchers.
Google Visiting Researcher Program
Visiting researcher program
Each year, academic researchers visit Google in order to collaborate with our research and engineering teams. Google provides a unique combination of interesting research problems, a wealth of data, world-class computing infrastructure, and the chance to deploy research in a form that will be used by millions.
Trust & Safety research awards
Google is committed to supporting innovative research and professors working to create positive societal impact with technology, particularly in areas relevant to Trust & Safety. We’re seeking research proposals and will provide unrestricted grants to support research efforts across disciplines and areas of interest related to Trust & Safety in technology.
In order to support and deepen our relationship with the next generation of researchers, Google offers fellowships, scholarships, internships and other student opportunities.
Google PhD Fellowship Program
