You can! As of March 2023, the procedure looks like this:
- Request CloudBank funds
- Upon receipt of the CloudBank award, log in to the azure portal through your CloudBank account
- Get your Azure subscription ID
- Fill out Azure’s OpenAI application form, using said subscription information
- Regarding the optional fields asking for an internal Microsoft contact, please first get in touch with CloudBank support for more details regarding what to put here
They’ll then go through a manual approval process which takes a few days but ultimately should enable those services on your CloudBank-funded account.
