US Department of State invites applications for its call on internet freedom – advancing and promoting anti-censorship transport libraries. This supports the long-term development, core support, outreach and implementation of censorship-defeating pluggable transports. The overall aim is to promote an open, interoperable, reliable and secure internet that fosters efficiency, innovation, communication, and economic prosperity while respecting privacy and guarding against disruption, fraud and theft by supporting the development of anti-censorship technologies, including libraries of interchangeable transport-layer obfuscation protocols known as pluggable transports.
One grant worth USD $2M (approx. AUD $2.69M) is available.
Foreign and US-based non-profit and non-governmental organisations, public international organisations, private, public or state institutions of higher education and for-profit organisations or businesses may apply. Preference is given to non-profit entities.
