Students, professors, PhD students doing research without a grant subsidy, and participants in data science competitions like Kaggle.
We also allow people doing “personal learning” to use the Educational Program license as long as you are not working on data related to employed work, consulting, or any other work for which you will be monetarily compensated.
The Educational License lasts for three months, but you can re-apply every three months as long as you are still eligible.
There are two difference between RapidMiner Studio Free and the Educational Program license:
Where can I get support?
We provide support for our Educational Program through the RapidMiner Community. Experts from RapidMiner and our community are happy to help, and you’ll generally get an answer to your question in a few hours.
I’m a professor and I want to use RapidMiner Studio for my class. Can I?
Absolutely! We love seeing an entire class start using RapidMiner. Each student will need to download RapidMiner Studio and apply for our Educational Program. And please tweet out a picture of your students and tag RapidMiner 🙂
Does a funded research project qualify for the Educational Program?
No it doesn’t, however we offer a significant discount on licenses for research projects. Contact our sales team to learn more.
The Educational license only supports 1 logical processor, so it doesn’t take advantage of the parallel processing capabilities in RapidMiner Studio. The paid editions of RapidMiner Studio add support for multiple logical processors, speeding performance by 10x or more in most cases.
Do you have an academic discount for the paid versions of RapidMiner Studio?
Yes. Contact our sales team to learn more about the significant discount we provide to our academic users.
Is there anything we can do to help RapidMiner?
Yes! Here’s are some things we’d really appreciate you doing so that we can continue to support this program:
