The Alteryx Educational Grant Program, announced in 2010, introduced several new offerings for Alteryx users in academic institutions of higher learning. The Alteryx engine software for desktop, server, and web deployments is made freely available for educational purposes.

See a list of the select institutions who have implemented teaching curricula that focus on the use of Alteryx to conduct geospatial and geographical business intelligence analytics across a range of academic departments.

Alteryx is building a strong community channel between industry users and this emerging educational users group. Alteryx supports this relationship through the encouragement of internship programs, graduate hiring opportunities, and Academic-Industry research initiatives.

Tony Ostrander learned of the Alteryx Scholarship Program when it was offered in 2010 to encourage graduate students at member universities to expand their analytic horizons through the use of Alteryx in their research activities. Tony applied and was awarded the $5,000 scholarship in the Spring of 2010. He is using Alteryx to complete his Master's thesis.

What professors & post-grads say...

Alteryx has a unique combination of functionality, including database management, spatial queries and analysis, and a wide range of reporting. In each of these three areas, the software is particularly flexible, full-bodied and robust. Those adopting Alteryx were able to eliminate the inefficiencies, in some cases this alone reduced development time by over 70%. As a person who has come to dislike most software for its simplistic default processes, few appearance-oriented options, and routines that often do not work, I am truly impressed with Alteryx."
