Community Projects Fund 2023: Call for Applications

community projects fund news

The 2023 call for applications has closed. We will announce the winners later this year.

Under 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. 

If you or your organisation is working on a new or existing project that fits the criteria below and need some financial support to get it off the ground or keep 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 applications will remain open until Wednesday, 31 May 2023 at 23:59 (UTC). See the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fundpage for more details.
