If you’re excited by the challenge of building, experimenting and developing the components required to make Web Monetization a standard part of the web platform then we’d like to support you by making you a Grant for the Web Technical Scholar.
GftW grantee Artist Rescue Trust will award $150,000 in funding and Web Monetization education to 100 U.S. creators impacted by COVID-19.

We are excited to announce that Grant for the Web has awarded the IGDA Foundation (IGDA-F) $500K USD grant to create a Diverse Game Developers Fund (DGDF) distributing more than $300,000 to marginalized game developers and students around the world.
As Grant for the Web enters 2021 we are building on our commitment to bring diversity, equity and inclusion to our program by making sure that we spark innovation, ideas and opportunities with people and communities too often used and then left behind. A key strategy in doing this is that we need to expand the voices and people feeding into our program and work with them to expand our knowledge, reach and connectivity to a globally diverse community.
We are excited to announce that we have awarded the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) a $268,700 USD grant to help ensure that the Grant for the Web program, grantees, and community shape an emerging Web Monetization ecosystem favorable to open standardization.
Our Technical Scholars program pairs knowledgeable developers with influential web development organizations. Our first Technical Scholar is Sid Vishnoi, who is working with the Firefox team at Mozilla to create a reference implementation of the Web Monetization specification in the browser engine Gecko.
