The auDA Foundation is a charitable trust established to promote and encourage educational and research activities that will enhance the utility of the Internet for the benefit of the Australian community.
Funding may be awarded for projects such as cyber-safety education, health-portals, internet software development, online databases, smart-device/internet apps, etc.
The Foundation typically offers grants in the range of $5,000 to $25,000 to not-for-profit organisations and research institutions.
Applications must be from:
- An Australian registered not-for-profit organisation (registered or established under a Commonwealth, State or Territory law, such as a company, partnership or association) or research institution. Profit-making organisations may also apply, but need to articulate their preferred mechanism for establishing a separate not-for-profit entity.
- Student applicants must provide proof of enrolment in an undergraduate or postgraduate degree course at an Australian university.
- Individuals who are not students are not eligible to apply for funding. They can, however, submit an application that is sponsored and authorised by an eligible organisation.
