About the Grants category

Submit grants proposals and discuss existing proposals here.

Proposal requirements:

  1. Name of organization or individual and project name
  2. Purpose of the grant: who benefits and how the project will serve the Foundation’s mission of user-owned data
  3. Code contributions must be open source
  4. Timeline with measurable objectives and goals
  5. Any potential risks that will affect the outcome of the project
  6. Budget and justification
  7. Reporting requirements: Progress reports to the foundation/committee and to the community.

After your proposal is submitted, open discussion regarding the project and the grant will ensue. The committee will review the proposal the next time they convene which occurs every other week.

The committee consists of the following members:
Foundation Members:

  • Luke
  • Nate

Skynet Labs Members:

  • Chris (Schinnerl)
  • Manasi

Sia and Skynet Community:

  • Mike76
  • Redsolver

To purpose a grant proposal, do you need to know how to code and to develop the proposal? And do you need to fund the proposal?

Or if you have an idea for Sia, could you make a proposal and see weather the community will fund and develop the idea/proposal?

Hey trymeout!

do you need to know how to code and to develop the proposal?

Proposals need to be actionable, meaning either you or someone on your team can make the proposal a reality.

And do you need to fund the proposal? Or if you have an idea for Sia, could you make a proposal and see weather the community will fund and develop the idea/proposal?

Nope, you don’t fund them yourself. The point here is to propose a project that the Sia Foundation Grants Committee will approve grant funds for.

Good luck!
