community projects fund news

The 2024 call for applications is now open. The deadline for the applications is 31 July 2024 at 23:59 (UTC).

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 July 2024 at 23:59 (UTC). See the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund page for more details.
