Linux Australia Council announced the opening of their 2020 grants program.
A total of $AUD 35,000 is available to fund open source and open hardware projects which will benefit the community.
In light of the situation brought about by COVID-19, applications for projects which provide technological assistance to get through this time are especially encouraged. For example, funding could be requested to improve documentation or the user experience of open source video conferencing software, making it more accessible to those who are not technically minded. Other related activities include development of web conferencing software that suits the needs of events held by the Open Source community.
Of course, applications are also encouraged for any other open technology project.
Applications will be accepted until 23:59 on 6 September 2020 anywhere on earth, with funding approvals finalised by the end of September.
