NSF Funds Access to Cloud-based Quantum Computing Platforms

(June 3, 2022) The National Science Foundation, in conjunction with Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM, and Microsoft, is promoting the availability of cloud-based access to quantum-computing platforms to advance research and build capacity in the academic setting. With the Dear Colleague Letter NSF 22-092, NSF’s Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), the Directorate for Engineering (ENG), and the Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP) notified the research community of their intention to support supplemental funding requests for currently active NSF awards to enable use of these quantum-computing platforms. NSF’s supplemental funding will include support for graduate students as well as fees to work on these hardware and software quantum platforms.
