As part of the NSF CC* Hybrid Cloud Award, Research Computing is offering free AWS credits in $5,000 increments to researchers or researcher teams who:

  • Are curious, eager and able to learn how to leverage AWS resources to further their research.
  • Have research needs that do not fit well into our current Research Computing Offerings.
  • Have enough technical knowledge on their teams to experiment quickly (credits must be used by September 2022).
  • Are willing to answer 3 questions in the survey linked below.

Race to AWS Credits! short survey link

Based on survey responses, Research Computing will evaluate use cases and select 10-15 respondents who if needed, will be paired with an appropriate AWS expert to consult with on relevant AWS services and how best to get started.

This initiative is the first step in an ongoing effort to connect campus researchers with cloud resources and knowledge. For those who are just interested in training, we will be soliciting feedback on AWS-offered training options specific to research at a later time and will be announcing those once they are scheduled.


We look forward to hearing from you!
