Along with our partners in the fledgling Web We Want coalition, the Web Foundation has announced the launch of a small grants programme. Designed to support national advocacy and campaigning efforts to make the web free, open, socially relevant and accessible to all, the programme will make awards of between $1000 and $3500. Grants will be provided in three categories: to support surveillance action research, to support capacity building and outreach and in selected rapid response situations. Applications from not-for-profit organisations in the Global South will be given priority.
The grants programme is open now, and the first set of deadlines is on September 9th. More detail on eligibility and the application process is available on the Web We Want site here.
