Amazon Web Services (AWS) Research Grants

In partnership with Machine Learning@Amazon, AWS offers up to $20,000 in compute tokens each quarter to professors and students. Academics have used these grants for projects ranging from Hack End weekends to massive MRI imaging projects. AWS provides building blocks for developing applications ranging from Elastic MapReduce for Hadoop analytics to fast and scalable storage with Amazon DynamoDB. Learn more & apply here.
Amazon Research Awards

ARA is an unrestricted gift to recognize exceptional faculty, and fund projects leading toward a PhD degree or conducted as a part of post-doctoral work. Each selected proposal is assigned an Amazon research contact, as we believe that both sides benefit from direct interaction on the topic of their research. We invite ARA recipients to visit Amazon offices worldwide to give talks related to their work and meet with our research groups face-to-face. We encourage ARA recipients to publish the outcome of the project and commit any related code to open source code repositories. Learn more here.

Publishing at Amazon

Amazon is committed to innovating at the frontiers of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Our scientists are encouraged to engage in the research community in the form of written publications, open source code and public datasets. We have instituted a new, fast-track publication approval process, to help share our research efforts as quickly as possible, while maintaining the highest standards of quality.

Diversity at Amazon

We are a company of builders working on behalf of a global customer base. Diversity is core to our leadership principles, as we seek diverse perspectives so that we can be “Right, A Lot”. We welcome people from all backgrounds and perspectives to innovate with us. Learn more at
