Dear all,

I hope everyone is well and safe amid the Covid-19 crisis.

I am writing to let you all know that the call for applications for 
LACNIC's FRIDA Program <https://programafrida.net/en> is open until May 
22, 2020.

The program his now offering a line of funding exclusively on *Internet 
Access* <https://programafrida.net/en/internet-access>, including (a) 
alternative models for access, (b) interconnection; (c) technologies for 
connectivity and (d) energy to power connectivity.

We will distribute grants and awards between US$10,000 and US$40,000. 
The application consists of submitting a form with a brief 750-word 
summary of the project. The call is only open to projects based in the 
LAC region.

If you have any questions, you may contact me directly.

Warm regards,



      Carolina Caeiro
