AI for Earth grants provides access to Microsoft resources to support projects that change the way people and organizations monitor, model, and manage Earth’s natural systems.
Azure compute credit grants provide you with Azure credits worth $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000, depending on your project scope, to start using Azure AI tools and cloud computing with your existing labeled dataset. By being a member of the AI for Earth grantee community, you also have access to additional resources – technical advice and support, online Azure training materials, and invitations to the AI for Earth Summit for networking and education opportunities.
Areas of focus
AI for Earth awards grants to support projects that use AI to change the way people and organizations monitor, model, and manage Earth’s natural systems. To date, they have awarded over 700 grants to projects with impact in over 80 countries, and we are committed to growing this community of grantees.
- Climate: The changing climate threatens human health, infrastructure, and natural systems. AI can give people more accurate climate predictions to help reduce the potential impacts.
- Agriculture: By 2050, farmers must produce more food, on less arable land, and with less environmental impact to feed the world’s increasing population. AI can help people monitor the health of farms in real-time.
- Biodiversity: Species are going extinct at an alarming rate. AI can help accelerate the discovery, monitoring, and protection of biodiversity across our planet.
- Water: In the next two decades, demand for freshwater is predicted to dramatically outpace supply. AI can help people model Earth’s water supply to help us conserve and protect freshwater.
- Funding up to $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000.
- To apply for Azure compute grants, submit a project proposal via the online application form. Review the proposal guidelines for application requirements.
