Thu, 2018-03-22 19:26

In February, the Open Technology Fund continued to both receive a large number of support requests and to support a diverse portfolio of internet freedom projects and fellows addressing internet censorship and surveillance threats in closed societies around the world where the free flow of information is curtailed. During the past month, OTF continued reviewing and responding to the 150+ concept notes received during the January 1 round while also accepting applications for the Information Controls Fellowship Program (deadline: March 25). The March 1 round review process is now underway, with 130+ concept notes received requesting nearly $30 million – the second highest number of applications ever received after the January 2018 round.
