auDA Foundation 2013 funding round now open

Posted by Leonie Dunbar on 7 May 2013

The auDA Foundation is now accepting applications for grants in the 2013 funding round.

The auDA Foundation Board is keen to receive applications that will utilise the power of the Internet to deliver practical outcomes through innovative means that will deliver a benefit to the Australian community.

The last funding round provided grants for worthy projects such as examining the use of Twitter by the courts, the creation of an online Community of Practice for nurse educators, an interactive interface to enable Indigenous communities to access and use three dimensional models of Australian landscapes and determining the preferred forms of service delivery for young people at risk of suicide and self-harm.

This is the 7th auDA Foundation funding round and the first time applications are to be submitted online.

The logo gives the auDA Foundation its own identity and image, distinct from auDA's other community outreach initiatives, such as the Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs) and Community Geographic Domain Names (CGDNs).

Applications for an auDA Foundation grant will only be accepted if a completed application is received on or before 5.00pm AEST 7 June 2013.
