Announcing PiCloud’s Second Annual Research Grant Program

December 11th, 2012 by Daniel Singh

Update: We’ve decided to extend the deadline until January 2nd to accommodate all those wishing to apply, but that have busy end-of-year schedules.

PiCloud has been growing incredibly, and we could not do it without the support and feedback of our global research community. So, to return the favor, today we’re introducing the 2nd PiCloud Research Program open to all research developers, engineers and academic professionals worldwide.

Our mission has always been to bring the cloud to scientists and engineers who don’t have access to a major compute cluster or lack the system administration know-how to operate one. Due to the success of our first Academic Grant Program in 2011, we’re proud to offer the opportunity for researchers around the world to once again submit their proposal for the chance to receive $500 (10,000 c1 core hours) free.

To apply, send an e-mail to by Wednesday, January 2nd 2013 with the following:

  1. Full name
  2. Organization or Educational Institution
  3. Your position
  4. Short biography
  5. A summary of your research field and project. Feel free to include conference papers, publications, and links to project websites. Please emphasize how PiCloud’s compute power will facilitate your research.

This year we will be awarding three submissions with free core hours. Winning researchers will also have an opportunity to get larger exposure for their projects on our blog, social media, case studies and our website.

To get an idea of past submissions we’ve received, see our previous winners.
