Students, educators, and researchers are key drivers of technological innovation. AWS has two programs to enable customers to move their research or teaching endeavors to the cloud and innovate quickly and at lower cost.
The AWS Cloud Credits for Research program (formerly AWS Research Grants) supports researchers who seek to:
- Build cloud-hosted publicly available science-as-a-service applications, software, or tools to facilitate their future research and the research of their community.
- Perform proof of concept or benchmark tests evaluating the efficacy of moving research workloads or open data sets to the cloud.
- Train a broader community on the usage of cloud for research workloads via workshops or tutorials.
