Applications for 2019 Chapterthon Now Open

Ilda Simao
By Ilda SimaoGrants Programme Manager

We’re happy to announce that the call for applications for the 2019 Chapterthon is now open.

Our world is more digitally connected than ever before, yet barriers still remain for the half of the world’s population who are unconnected.

For 2019, Chapterthon projects will help with Connecting the Unconnected. The Internet is for everyone and we won’t rest until every person who wants to connect, can connect.

Want to take part in this challenge?

We are looking for creative, innovative, and impactful short-term projects from our Chapters and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that are for the community, with the community, by the community.

Find out how to apply at: https://www.internetsociety.org/grants/chapterthon/2019/

Only one project will be selected per Chapter to participate in this contest. The selected projects then participate in the global Chapterthon contest. The three winning projects will receive an award!

To guide you through this process, we’ve organised an info session on 27 June 2019 at 11:00 UTC.

You can register in advance at:
https://isoc.zoom.us/meeting/register/5b0fba421a1ce3737510d14dfea9e911

All other information about the Chapterthon is available here:https://www.internetsociety.org/grants/chapterthon/2019/

Take part and help us connect the world one community at a time!
