The Amazon Research Awards from Amazon Science supports research at academic institutions and non-profit organizations in areas that align with Amazon's mission to advance "customer-obsessed" science. Research areas may include: applied machine learning, automated reasoning, computer vision, fairness in artificial intelligence, machine learning algorithms and theory, natural language processing, robotics, security, sustainability and more. Researchers retain all intellectual property of their funded research. A proposed cash budget is generally expected to support one to two graduate students (or a post-doctoral researcher) for one year, plus some conference travel and equipment. The budget should include a list of expected costs specified in USD, and should not include administrative overhead costs. Additionally, proposals may include a request for AWS Promotional Credits. Applications are open to researchers at eligible research institutions worldwide, except for those countries with US embargoes.
Applications for the Fall 2023 round is due on November 13, 2023.
