Since 2018, the Google exploreCSR awards have supported institutions to design and host research-focused initiatives during the academic year that expose students from marginalized groups to computing research methodologies, career pathways, and exploratory problems. The exploreCSR awards have supported eleven CAHSI institutions, each customized to the needs of local students and best practices for broadening participation.
Applications are still open, but due July 7, 2021. Notification of proposal decisions will be made in August 2021. Our Google partners have agreed to provide a workshop on how to prepare competitive applications to the program.
