OpenAI launches official ChatGPT support for universities and nonprofits

OpenAI, an artificial intelligence (AI) company, has introduced two new programs to broaden the availability of its ChatGPT services to universities and nonprofit organizations. One of these initiatives is “ChatGPT Edu,” a specialized version of the AI large language model tailored for universities to be used by students, faculty, researchers, and in campus operations.

OpenAI states that the new product provides enterprise-grade security features and controls, making it cost-effective for educational institutions. A recent blog post from the company highlighted various ways in which ChatGPT is currently being used in universities. The post mentioned that institutions such as Oxford, Wharton, University of Texas at Austin, Arizona State University, and Columbia University are already utilizing the service.

For instance, researchers at Columbia University are utilizing ChatGPT to create intervention strategies aimed at preventing drug overdoses. In a similar vein, a faculty member at Arizona State University has created a tool called "GPT Buddy" using the platform, enabling German language learners to practice conversational skills at their convenience.

OpenAI has introduced a new program to provide additional tools and assistance to nonprofits, along with reduced costs for using ChatGPT. Nonprofits signing up for the service can now utilize the ChatGPT Team service at a discounted rate of $20 per user per month, with the possibility of a 50% discount for "larger nonprofits prepared for extensive implementation." Both ChatGPT Edu and ChatGPT for Nonprofits offer access to the most up-to-date models, such as GPT-4o, as well as various services and features like image creation, collaborative workspaces, and customized GPTs.
