Good Chemistry Academic Grant Program

Good Chemistry’s Academic Grant Program offers up to $10,000 in free credits to use on QEMIST Cloud, our engine that enables faster, more accurate, and scalable ways to perform computational chemistry simulations by leveraging readily accessible computers on the cloud. Simulating chemistry on computers will drive material innovation in the decades to come. It will allow us to unleash the power of computational chemistry by leveraging the on-demand scalability of the cloud combined with the latest advances in machine learning and quantum computing.

The Grant Program credits can help advance your research by providing free compute time to run chemistry simulations at scale on the cloud. We are excited to hear your ideas! Please read the proposal guidelines and apply by submitting your application.

Proposal Guidelines

The program is open to anyone in academia with a background in chemistry, materials science and life sciences. Applications will be reviewed with the following criteria:

  • Does the result of the work have a potential positive impact on the scientific community and/or industry?
  • Does the work have a clear research goal which can be advanced by the use of cloud infrastructure for computational chemistry calculations?


All applications with merit will be considered. Submissions that are accepted will be provided credits directly on QEMIST Cloud.
