Given the urgency of the COVID-19 crisis, we are accepting requests in the AI for Health
program for COVID-19 grant proposals from nonprofits, academia, and governments. This is
a focused effort for COVID-19 grant requests only. We will accept grants until June
15th, 2020 or until further notice.
This grant program provides Azure cloud and High-Performance
Computing capabilities. Our team of AI for Health data science experts, whose mission is
to improve the health of people and communities worldwide, is also open to
collaborations with COVID-19 researchers as they tackle this critical challenge. More
broadly, Microsoft’s research scientists across the world, spanning computer science,
biology, medicine, and public health, will also be available to provide advice and
collaborate per mutual interest.
To apply for a grant, you must prepare a description, no longer
than three pages, of your
proposal which cover the following questions. Do not include any proprietary information
in proposals. It is expected that teams who receive AI for Health COVID-19 grants will
publish their work and results in an open manner.
Proposals will be evaluated on the following criteria:
Describe how your proposed work contributes to
understanding of COVID-19 and/or
improves our ability to respond to the pandemic.
