Community Projects Fund 2022: Call for Applications

community projects fund news

Applications are now open for the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund. For the sixth year in a row, the RIPE NCC is committed to supporting activities and projects for the Good of the Internet.

Through the Community Projects Fund, the RIPE NCC will provide up to EUR 250,000 per year to support projects of value to the operation and resilience of the Internet, with a focus on tools and services benefitting the technical community in Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia. 

Today, the Internet owes a lot of its success to non-commercial, community-driven work, and this continues to ensure the Internet remains resilient, secure and accessible. If you or your organisation is working on a new or existing project that fits the criteria below, and you need some financial support to get it off the ground or keep to it going, we want to hear from you!

Is your project of benefit to the Internet, particularly the RIPE community?
Is your project non-commercial in nature? 
Do you have a clear project plan and timeline? 

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Funding may be used to purchase equipment, but this cannot be the sole expenditure
  • Funding cannot be used for humanitarian aid, donations, or to encourage political reform
  • Funding cannot be used to provide scholarships or cover tuition fees
  • Funding cannot be used to support any form of commercial activity 

The call for applicants will remain open until Sunday, 7 August 2022 at 23:59 (UTC). See the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fundpage for more details.
