We support academics and students with academic licenses and awards.

More than 900 research projects at 250+ universities and 75+ other organizations have been completed or are underway.

If you are an academic or researcher whose project is funded so that you can afford to buy an academic license – e.g. as part of your grant or from your available funding – we’d be pleased to arrange a license that suits your circumstances. Please contact us to arrange an academic license.

(And it seems appropriate that if you’re going to pay a research company to administer your survey or recruit your participants, then you should be prepared buy a 1000minds academic license too. Fair enough?)

If you’re a student with some funding available for your project – e.g. as part of your Masters or PhD – heavily discounted student licenses are available.

Or, if you’re a student without funding, contact us to request an academic award to use 1000minds for free, and we’ll send you an application form. Applications are usually approved quickly, but in the meantime you can start a trial immediately.

Tell us about your project

We’d like to mention your project on our research projects page, as this inspires others (as well as making us very proud!). Please send us your details.

And see potential research ideas if you’re looking for inspiration.
