Start Act Voyager

Voyager (7,500 USD)

This grant is not approved. Concerns were raised about the previous related grant by the same submitter that was not successful.

Next Round

We accept proposals throughout the year; our next round of voting would be in November, but since we have allocated all the funding from our budget for the calendar year, there will be no explicit call for grants in November/December. The next call will be in January of 2018.

You can submit proposals now. If you want to help funding and increase our budget, please visit our donations page We sincerely appreciate all the donors which made the grant program possible. Also see the press releases for the recent major donations.
