Research Awards

Find invitations to research challenges important to our mission

From time to time, we invite academics to propose research in specific areas that align with our mission of building community and bringing the world closer together.

Invitations typically address specific research challenges that we have identified are important in our mission. These vary in nature and may solicit proposals from individual researchers addressing a well-defined problem or may require multiple university departments to collaborate with a diverse set of skills to solve a more complex multi-disciplinary challenge.

Calls for proposals align to specific areas of research. They offer insight to the academic community on topical research questions of interest to Meta, where academic insight is key.

Specific details on timing and criteria will apply to each call.
