Dear SEEDIG colleagues,

Are you working on or planning a non-commercial project that would 
benefit the Internet or the RIPE community? Or maybe you know somebody 
with a great idea, who is lacking to funds to make it true?

Through the Community Projects Fund, the RIPE NCC will provide up to EUR 
250,000 per year to support projects of value to the operation and 
resilience of the Internet, with a focus on tools and services 
benefitting the technical community in the Europe, the Middle East and 
Central Asia.

You can apply by submitting a clear project plan and timeline by 1 
September at:
https://ripe.net/community-projects-fund

A couple of things to keep in mind:
- Funding may be used to purchase equipment, but this cannot be the sole 
expenditure
- Funding cannot be used for humanitarian aid, donations, or to 
encourage political reform
- Funding cannot be used to provide scholarships or cover tuition fees
- Funding cannot be used to support any form of commercial activity

If you want some inspiration, check out the projects funded in the past 
(but don't let that limit you!):

Anybody within RIPE NCC service region can apply, so feel free to spread 
this call to anyone you think might find it useful.

For any questions, email my colleague Alastair Strachan at 
projectsfund at ripe.net.

Best regards,
Gergana
