Hello all,

I'm channeling my colleagues from APNIC, AfriNIC and LACNIC helping them
share some funding opportunities for projects involving IPv6 and
cybersecurity (RPKI included!)


This year the Seed Alliance <> and its regional
members, FIRE, FRIDA and ISIF Asia will support technical projects
seeking to improve Internet security and stability in Africa, Latin
America and the Caribbean as well as the Asia Pacific region to allocate
US$150,000 in grants.Those interested in obtaining these grants must
submit their projects to the call for proposals launched by each
regional program.

1) Africa – Deadline: 31 May 2016. Two grants of US$25,000 each for
