May 31 Deadline for $517,000 US in Internet-related Grants in Africa and Asia Pacific

Dan York

If you are located in Africa or the Asia Pacific region, this coming Tuesday, May 31, is the application deadline for an excellent series of grants related to Internet infrastructure, development, security and education.

I just wrote about the Internet Society Cybersecurity Grant for up to $56,000 AUD (roughly $40K USD) in the Asia Pacific region… but it is part of a larger set of grants that all have a deadline of May 31.

The Information Society Innovation Fund Asia (ISIF Asia) has $386,000 AUD (roughly $277K USD) to award in four categories:

  • APNIC Internet Operations Research Grants
  • Internet Society Cybersecurity Grant
  • Community Impact Grants
  • Technical Innovation Grants (including IoT and IPv6)

These are for projects that will be conducted in the Asia Pacific region (see the list of countries and economies eligible for the grants).

Meanwhile, FIRE Africa has $240,000 USD to be awarded in three different sets of grants (including two grants sponsored by the Internet Society) that cover topics including:

  • Technical Innovation
  • Community Development
  • Governance Enhancement
  • Education
  • Internet Security
  • Internet Access

These grants are available for projects in the African and Indian Ocean region.

All of these are projects funded as part of the Seed Alliance.

The application period has been open since February 24, but this is the final few days to put together and submit an application proposal. I could see it being a very busy weekend for some groups and organizations in those regions!

It is great to see these kind of grants being made available in these regions and I look forward to learning in a few months about the projects that get funded!
