Are you an SF-Bay Area ISOC Chapter member working on an Internet-related project that benefits and empowers the SF-Bay Area community? Does it fall into one of the following categories:
- Access and Development
- Open Standards, Security and Resilience
- Policy environment
- The Internet in support of the Sustainable Development Goals
If so, you may be able to get a Medium or Large Scale Grant (up to $20,000) from the Internet Society’s Beyond the Net Funding Programme (BNET).
How It Works
If you have a great idea, send us an email outlining your project by September 8 2017, clearly highlighting the following:
- Why your project is unique and deserves to be funded
- The long-term impact of your project
- The impact of your project on people’s lives
- How your local community is involved
- How your project can be sustained and replicated by others
We will assess all projects received to see whether they fit into the chapter’s current focus areas and whether they meets the BNET funding requirements. We will then select one project and will apply for funding on behalf of the project.
Previously Funded Projects
Take a look at the work we’ve been doing for our “Bridging California’s Rural/Urban Digital Divide with Mobile Broadband“, which received funding from the BNET program in 2016.
