The ISIF Asia Program — — which provides small grants and awards, has a vision for “Small grants, inspiring innovation” and was developed to help advance local and regional projects aimed at introducing, improving, and applying Internet technology for the benefit of Asia-Pacific users and communities. DotAsia has been supporting the program since its beginning. The ISIF fund has been administered by APNIC since 2008, under a separate funding arrangement with IDRC; while APNIC has also made a full contribution to the grants fund in each year. Up until October 2011, AUD 670,000 had been granted to 23 initiatives from 12 economies in the Asia Pacific region, showcasing innovation, cooperation, and technical knowledge, and the fund continues to grow with SIDA, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency joining as a partner and funder in 2012.
