FRIDA is a LACNIC fund that supports initiatives to strengthen the Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The program provides funding under three thematic categories:
Under these three topics, FRIDA offers two forms of support: awards and grants.
FRIDA Awards recognize initiatives with proven impact that have contributed to the creation of an open, stable and secure Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The FRIDA Award consists of a cash prize of US$10,000 plus a fellowship for a representative of the winning project to participate in Awards Ceremony at the next LACNIC presencial event.
FRIDA Grants provide financial support to innovative initiatives seeking to promote an open, stable and secure Internet for Latin America.
The grants are financial contributions between US$10,000 and US$40,000 to complete projects up to 12-months long.
