Faculty have long been requesting a way to teach with the Windows Azure platform. Meanwhile, technical students have been flocking to Windows Azure events to get their first exposure and incorporating Windows Azure platform into their Imagine Cup solutions at record numbers. To secure the next generation on this platform, Windows Azure Educator Grants are now broadly available.
Through the Windows Azure Educator Grants, faculty can request five-month Windows Azure Passes for themselves and their students. Faculty can apply for these grants through the Educators Page on WindowsAzure.com/Education. For details on the resources provided please visit the Windows Azure Educator’s page.
If faculty members have requirements which are not met by the resources above, they can contact AzureU@microsoft.com for necessary adjustments. This includes the ability for faculty to request time extensions on their specific accounts (prior to account expiration) for an additional five months.
For further information, please email the Windows Azure Education team at AzureU@microsoft.com.
