New funding is available for AI-related research projects as part of the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) Pilot, which will run for about two years. Multiple government and private sector resources are offered including, more recently, credits by our cloud partners Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). For more information and to apply for an allocation, please visit the NAIRR Pilot website. The cloud awards for Azure and AWS will be managed by CloudBank. We strongly encourage interested researchers to apply as soon as possible as resources are limited and requests will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is important to provide a strong justification (up to 3-pages) with a cost estimate in your request to avoid being declined or given a reduced award. Please review our best practices guide and see an example request for help writing a successful proposal. The CloudBank team is also available via for additional questions or proposal support.
