The general objectives of the Foundation are to promote and encourage education and research activities that will enhance the utility of the Internet for the benefit of the Australian community, including:
- The provision of open scholarships and prize funds to encourage and reward academic and applied excellence;
- The funding of pure and applied research including academic positions and the publication of results for the benefit of the Australian community;
- The funding of community demonstration projects and the publication of results for the benefit of the Australian community;
- The funding of public education and awareness initiatives through all relevant mediums and institutions.
Proposals that fail to meet the objectives of auDA Foundation will not be considered for funding.
Examples of projects that have already received funding from the auDA Foundation are available on the website under Grant Recipients.
Please note that while the featured projects may provide a guide to the sorts of projects likely to be successful, the Board may be unwilling to fund proposals that too closely resemble projects funded in previous rounds.
