Dear Internet Society members :
The Internet Society will be accepting applications for the June 2012 round
of the Community Grants Programme from 1 March to 30 March 2012, (note that
applications will close at midnight pacific time). Award decisions will be
made in mid-June.
To prepare for this application round, we will be holding two information
sessions via WebEx on 21 February at 1030 and 2000 UTC. More information
on the Q&A sessions can be found at
If you plan to attend, please sign up for one of the two meeting times

Session notes will be made available on the Chapter Meeting webpage for
those who are unable to attend.
Programme information is available on the Internet Society website, for
your review at:
that this information will soon be available in French and Spanish).
Those participating in a conference call are urged to read over the
programme webpages in advance of the meeting.
**New to the programme**
In a continuous effort to improve the programme, a new intuitive online
grant application system has been implemented. As a result :
- Online applications will be easier to complete
- The entire grants process will be web-based
- A step-by-step tutorial on how to submit your application will be
available at all times.
More information will soon be available in our website.
**Programme Updates **
The Internet Society Strategic Objectives have recently changed:
The current, preferred Focus Areas for project applications remain:
- Local content creation (encouraging demand for and use of the Internet
for a specific community)
- Encouraging the multi-stakeholder approach to technical and policy
- Interconnection and traffic exchange
It is important to note, that the above Focus Areas may provide direction
in formulating project ideas. These are preferences only, so other project
topics will be accepted.
Any questions regarding the Community Grants Programme, please send them to
We look forward to your participation.
Would you like to see what your peers are doing to breaking barriers?
