The auDA Foundation, which was established by .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA) in 2005, is calling for submissions from eligible applicants to receive funding in its second round of grants.
The auDA Foundation Board is keen to receive applications that will utilize the power of the Internet to deliver practical outcomes through innovative means.
For example, a grant for an education-based project could involve auDA supporting relevant scholarships for PhD students or research into Internet-related technologies.
Chris Disspain CEO of auDA said 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" Disspain said.
According to auDA Foundation rules, eligible applicants include Australian not-for-profit organisations, research institutions and sponsored individuals but projects must not be for political, religious or sectarian purposes.
Importantly, not-for-profit subsidiaries of Australian businesses will also be eligible.
Applications for an auDA Foundation grant will only be accepted if a complete application is received before July 31, 2007.
