For the sixth year in a row, the RIPE NCC is committing to support 
activities and projects for 'the good of the Internet'. We are pleased to 
invite applications for funding from the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund.

250,000 per year to support projects of value to the operation, resilience 
and sustainability of the Internet, with a focus on tools and services

Call for Applications

If you or your organisation is working on a new or existing project that 
fits these criteria and needs some financial support to get it off the 
ground or keep it going, we want to hear from you.
In your application form, you will be asked to describe your project, 
provide the amount of funding you'll need and how it will be spent, and 
give a detailed explanation of how your project benefits the Internet.

The application deadline is Sunday, 7 August at 23:59 (UTC+2).

The idea behind the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund was originally 
proposed to RIPE NCC members as a potential "good of the Internet" 
initiative during the RIPE NCC General Meeting November 2014 and received 
initial support at that time. It received further support in subsequent 
years and is included in the RIPE NCC Activity Plan and Budget for each 
year that a call for applications is issued.
