The auDA Foundation opens applications for the 2022 major cycle

The auDA Foundation has opened the application for its 2022 grant cycle, committing $600,000 in funding for education, research and community projects that will improve the way Australians access and benefit from the internet.

The 2022 grant cycle will fund research and education initiatives that promote digital inclusion and innovation in five key areas:
1. Rural, regional and remote communities
2. Groups of people with disabilities
3. First Nations peoples
4. Older Aussies
5. Small businesses

“I encourage those interested to apply and work with us to make the internet more useful to all Australians,” auDA Foundation Chairman James Atkins urged.

“The program encourages meaningful innovation in Australia’s ever-changing internet ecosystem and enables Australians to better access the many benefits of the internet,” said Rosemary Sinclair, CEO of auDA.

The Australian Center for Rural Entrepreneurship (Acre) was one of the recipients of the 2021 grant round. According to Acre Social Enterprise Schools Learning Coordinator, Tom Colcott, the big one has helped unlock opportunities for young social entrepreneurs and enabled them to acquire essential digital skills.

The auDA Foundation will launch the 2022 grant cycle tonight at an event in Sydney, which will also celebrate the 2021 grant recipients.

Applications for the 2022 grant cycle open today and close September 9, 2022.

Since 2006, the auDA Foundation has encouraged innovation to improve the usefulness of the Internet in Australia, distributing grants of more than $3 million for more than 140 projects. The 2022 cycle will reinforce its contribution and impact.
