________________________________________________________________________

 

 

Applications for ISIF Asia’s 2016 grants are now open, with the largest 

ever pool of AUD 386,000 available, across four grant programs to 

support projects using the Internet for social and economic development 

in the Asia Pacific.

 

Applications are open from today until 31 May 2016.

 

 

Projects that introduce, improve, and apply Internet technology for the 

benefit of the Asia Pacific community may be eligible for financial 

support in the following categories:

 

 

APNIC Internet Operations Research Grants

-----------------------------------------

 

The aim of the APNIC Internet Operations Research Grants is to support 

the development of a research community focused on improving the 

availability, reliability, and security of the Internet in the Asia 

Pacific.

 

The grants are open to researchers working on Internet operations, 

infrastructure and related protocols in areas such as:

 

    - Network measurement and analysis

    - IPv6 deployment

    - BGP routing

    - Network security

    - Peering and interconnection

 

Public or private sector organizations, universities, research and 

development institutions and non-government organizations will be 

considered, with members of Network Operator Groups (NOGs), IXPs, root 

server operators, academics, and post-graduate students particularly 

encouraged to apply.

 

Applicants can apply for funding between AUD 5,000 to AUD 45,000 based 

on research needs, a realistic timeframe, and a detailed budget. 

AUD 90,000 is available in total to fund successful applications.

 

 

Internet Society Cybersecurity Grant

------------------------------------

 

A single grant of AUD 56,000 is available for a project focusing on the 

resiliency and security of the Internet’s naming and routing functions, 

through innovative approaches to Domain Name Security Extensions 

(DNSSEC), RPKI and BGP. These approaches should enhance user confidence 

in Internet-based services and options for the deployment of secure 

routing standards.

 

Strong emphasis is placed on documenting impacts and sharing knowledge 

through papers, videos, and associated communication materials.

 

 

Community Impact Grants

-----------------------

 

Innovation and development are integral components of these grants, with

AUD 60,000 available to fund two new projects and a single grant of 

AUD 50,000 to scale up an existing solution. The organization selected 

under the scale-up grant will also receive a capacity building package 

valued at AUD 10,000.

 

Areas of focus for this grant include women and girls in IT, enhancing 

democracy, open data, economic empowerment, poverty alleviation health 

and education.

issues using Internet technologies in an innovative way, and would not 

be made possible without contributions from APNIC, the Internet Society

and the Canadian International Development Research Centre.

 

Please note, all grant allocations are competitive and follow a rigorous

selection process.
