Cost/funding for participants

Fully Funded
Students receive named Fellowships which include a monetary award. The funds are given directly to the university to be distributed to cover the student’s expenses and stipend as appropriate. The funds are given as unrestricted gifts, and it is Google’s policy not to pay for overhead on unrestricted gifts.

In addition, the student will be matched with a Google Research Mentor who we hope will become a valuable resource to the student. There is no employee relationship between the student and Google as a result of receiving the fellowship.

Fellowship recipients are not subject to intellectual property restrictions unless they complete an internship at Google. Fellowship recipients serving an internship are subject to the same intellectual property and other contractual obligations as any other Google intern.

If a Fellowship student is interested, an internship at Google is encouraged, but not guaranteed or required.
