Internet Society Foundation Research Grant Program 2024 [Funded]

The Internet Society Foundation’s Research Grant Program 2024 supports global research collaborations that advance understanding of the Internet and its value for all.

This program is intended for research that is applied and open, meaning the research seeks to answer a real-world question and should be openly published and made available to the scientific community at no cost. The Foundation supports research involving human or animal subjects when the project has been certified by a responsible body to be ethical and in compliance with local law. It is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator of the project to obtain these certifications.

Areas of Focus

Statements of interest and subsequent proposals should address topics related to one of the following thematic areas:

  • Greening the Internet
  • The Internet Economy
  • A Trustworthy Internet
  • Decolonizing the Internet

The program provides for two levels of funding:

  • Independent researchers may apply for funding up to US$200,000. Grants will be awarded directly to individuals who are identified as the principal investigator on the project and he/she will be responsible for grant management including all reporting requirements during the life of the grant.
  • Organizations and institutions may apply for funding up to US$500,000. One or more awards in each of the thematic areas are anticipated subject to fiscal year funding.
