AWS Educate is Amazon's global, grants-based initiative that gives students and educators hands-on experience with AWS technology, cloud training resources, course content and collaboration forums.
With Amazon Web Services you can leverage a wide range of cloud-based technology solutions, including storage & content delivery, managed databases, networking tools, developer tools, management tools, security & identity management systems, analytics, game development, mobile services, application services, and more.
To apply for a grant you must first have a personal Amazon Web Services account. With you account you must agree to terms of service that exist between you and Amazon.
For additional information about the AWS Educate program, you may refer to Amazon's AWS in Education FAQs.
While it is suggested that you register for an Amazon Web Services account using your New School email address, The New School does not manage orf control your individual user account. Your Amazon Web Services account is a stand alone account that you create at Amazon.
With your Amazon Web Services account, you may purchase a range of cloud-based web services. Once you have an Amazon Web Services account, you may apply for a grant (issued on the basis of your affiliation with The New School). Once approved, you may apply this credit to your personal account, and charge Amazon Web Services against its balance.
