The Google Research Scholar Program 2022 is currently accepting applications.
The Google Research Scholar Program intends to help early-career academics who are doing research in Google-related subjects.
The Research Scholar Program grants unrestricted donations to promote research at universities all around the globe, with a particular emphasis on sponsoring world-class research by early-career academics.
Google hopes that this initiative will aid in the development of new faculty partnerships and stimulate the building of long-term ties.
