Deadline Approaching to Apply for an ARIN Community Grant

Posted: Wednesday, 03 June 2020

Do you know of a project that:

  • is operational or research-based that improves the overall Internet industry and Internet user environment?
  • advances ARIN’s mission and broadly benefits the Internet community within the ARIN region?
  • needs funding?
  • is non-commercial in nature?

We want to learn more about it! Consider applying for a 2020 ARIN Community Grant, but hurry – you only have until 10 June to submit your application.

Projects must fit into one or more of these four broad categories:

  • Internet technical improvements that promote and facilitate the expansion, development, and growth of the infrastructure of the Internet consistent with the public interest
  • Registry processes and technology improvements that help maintain a globally consistent and highly usable Internet Numbers Registry system
  • Informational outreach that advances the Internet on topics such as, but not limited to: IPv6 deployment, Internet research, and Internet governance
  • Research related to ARIN’s mission and operations

For 2020, the ARIN Board of Trustees has approved a total expenditure of up to $60,000 (USD) for grants of varying amounts, starting at $1,000 (USD) and based on project need.
