Grants for Research Projects
The Regional Fund for Digital Innovation in Latin America and the Caribbean has opened a call for proposals for its 2015 Grants program, which provides funding for ICT projects related to Internet development in the region.
The 2015 FRIDA Grants program is now receiving projects under two basic categories: research projects and ICT development projects.
For each project, FRIDA will provide up to USD 20,000 (twenty thousand US dollars), to be executed within a maximum period of twelve months.
Projects may be submitted under four categories: a) Devices, infrastructure, and technologies. Accelerating and expanding access; b) Creating and developing skills and content for sustainable human development; c) Mobile Internet for social inclusion, growth, political participation, and active citizenship; d) Internet for promoting, guaranteeing, and exercising Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
To make it easier to prepare the proposals, we will be offering online workshops in the months of March and April. For more information, please go to http://www.programafrida.net/grants
