Beyond the Net Grants

The Internet Changes Everything

November 2016

This cycle, we received 39 amazing applications from around the world. The project ideas were varied, original, and focused on helping local communities. It was hard, but the Selection Committee managed to pick six projects for funding.

These projects were selected for their uniqueness, structure and the benefits they will provide to their communities. They are at the core of our mission and we would like to congratulate and welcome the new grantees!
