I'd like to know if SNOPT solver is available free of cost for academic research in any of the optimization software packages.

I came across a few softwares that have SNOPT, but those require a commercial license.


It appears that SNOPT requires a paid license, even for single-use by an academic. According to the linked-to website, SNOPT would cost you a single payment of $416.

Have you considered using free, open-source software? For example, you could try using IPOPT.
