Microsoft AI for Accessibility Grants Program 2021: Call for Proposals

Application Deadline:July 30, 2021, 11:59 PM

Microsoft is currently accepting proposals for the AI for Accessibility Grants Program to empower your work through grants, investments of technology, and expertise. Microsoft AI for Accessibility is currently calling for project proposals that advance AI-based innovations in education to empower people with disabilities. 

AI for Accessibility grants support projects that use AI to empower people living with disabilities. We are looking for individuals or teams who are not only passionate about making the world more inclusive, but also firmly rooted in the communities they intend to benefit. We want to invest in ideas that are developed by or with people with disabilities.

Azure compute credits plus grants

In addition to Azure compute credits worth $10,000, $15,000, or $20,000 (depending on your project scope and needs), these grants cover costs related to collecting or labeling data, developing models, or other engineering-related work. Applications are evaluated on their scientific merit, innovative use of AI technology, and potential for scalability.

Our community of AI for Accessibility grantees also receive Azure developer support, resources, and opportunities to collaborate and showcase their work.

How to Apply

Submit your project proposal via the online application form.

We accept proposals on a rolling basis and review them a few times a year. Our next deadline is: Employment | July 30, 2021, 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

We invite applications from developers, NGO’s, academics, researchers, and inventors to accelerate their work for people with disabilities. This is a global program: Grant applications from all countries are eligible. If you are worried about not meeting all requirements, please connect to someone in your community who can support you and partner on an application.
