Microsoft is looking to bring more users into the Azure fold by targeting university students with a new plan.
Last week, Microsoft introduced a new Azure for Students offering. This complements the existing Azure for Students Starter plan -- the rebranded Imagine subscription for Azure. (This Imagine subscription was formerly part of DreamSpark, which was discontinued/rebranded to Imagine in 2016.)
The Azure for Students plan gives those with a verifiable school address full access to more than 25 Azure services -- including some AI ones -- for free, plus $100 in credit.
Here is what's included in both of these student plans:
Azure for Students (for University students, 18+ years old)
Azure for Students Starter (for high school or secondary students in addition to university students)
