auDA Foundation Opens Third Round of Grants 23 June 2008
The auDA Foundation was established by .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA) in 2005 and will be accepting applications for grants in the third 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.
The first two funding rounds have provided grants for innovative projects such as the delivery of "just in time" advice and support through moderated forums for commmunity volunteers in remote and regional areas, or the development of a customised web browser for the vision impaired.
Chris Disspain CEO of auDA said; "auDA Foundation grants will typically be between $5,000 to $20,000 and be awarded to a range of eligible education or research-based community projects."
"The auDA Foundation would certainly be interested in any new technologies or innovations that will deliver a benefit to the Australian community" Mr Disspain said.
