Request for Proposals

Deadline: May 7, 2015, by 11:59 PM PT

Summary of Request for Proposals

The Digital Trust Foundation has found several gaps in digital abuse research and action. To address these gaps, the Foundation intends to fund (1) empirical research to understand the prevalence of various forms of digital abuse; (2) implementation and evaluation of digital abuse prevention strategies; and (3) organizations that provide direct services to victims and projects that contribute to the digital abuse policy debate. We anticipate entertaining proposals for projects of various sizes, with budgets in the range of $50,000 and $200,000. Exceptional projects with budgets outside of this range may be considered.
