The Internet Society Foundation is delighted to announce the call for applications for the Beyond the Net Small Grant Programme 2019!
For nearly a decade, the Beyond the Net Small Grant Programme and the former Chapter Events Funding Programme have played a major role in the development of the Internet Society Chapter and Special Interest Group communities. By supporting local activities, implementing meaningful projects, and engaging with local members and entities, Beyond the Net Small Grants not only helped expand the number of Chapter and SIG members, but also extended the Internet Society’s impact around the world.
In the first phase of the Internet Society’s new Foundation, the grant-giving programmes will focus on the work of the Chapter and SIG communities. As such, the Beyond the Net Small Grant Programme will continue to support these communities with funding to implement local projects such as learning opportunities, skill development, networking events, and membership and marketing campaigns.
All Internet Society Chapters and SIGs in good standing are eligible to apply. The Small Grants are available on an annual basis (per calendar year) at a maximum of USD $3,500 per Chapter/SIG. The application will be open through 30 October 2019.
