auDA Foundation Opens 2012 Funding Round

Posted by Leonie Dunbar on 23 April 2012

The auDA Foundation Board is keen to receive applications that utilise the power of the Internet to deliver practical outcomes through innovation, benefitting the Australian community.
The last funding round provided grants for worthy projects such as the provision of a cross-cultural web interface for Australian Indigenous Internet users and an online system for interactive music therapy performance experiences for young Australians with Down Syndrome in urban and remote locations.

As an outcome of the recent review of the auDA Foundation, there are a number of changes that have been implemented to this Funding Round including:

•    allowing for consideration of 3 year PhD student funding,
•    increasing the top range of what the Foundation typically offers to $25,000, and
•    a 2 step application process.
