Google Cloud Platform Education Grants

Free Google Cloud Platform credits for computer science courses in higher education

Prepare Your Students for Cloud Computing

Give students the ability to learn on the leading cloud platform. On Google Cloud Platform, students will find all the tools necessary to build a wide range of applications and have access to the same infrastructure, data analytics, and machine learning that Google uses.

Free Cloud Credits

University faculty can apply for Google Cloud Platform Education Grants for their computer science courses. Approved applicants will receive a grant for free credits which their teaching staff and students can use on any Google Cloud Platform product.

Documentation for Students and Teachers

Along with credits, this program hosts a group of faculty using the program and will provide a curated set of resources designed to help students and faculty use Google Cloud Platform products effectively in computer science curricula.

Tools for Any Course

With Education Grants, faculty, teaching staff and students will receive free credits that they can use on any Google Cloud Platform product. Faculty, teaching staff and students in mobile development courses can start coding their apps immediately on Google App Engine and scale without the headache of managing servers. Vision API and Translation API provide straightforward examples for machine learning lessons while BigQuery allows students to explore the challenges of working with large data sets. Google Cloud Platform can be used in courses covering Networking, Cyber Security, System Administration, and more.
