Tezos Community Grants Program

July 27, 2021 — The global Tezos ecosystem today announced a new grant program designed to support builders and creators exploring the Tezos community.

The programs will be accessible to grantees from around the world and managed through regional ecosystem hubs. The community small grant programs will provide funding towards projects built by the broad and diverse Tezos community to expand developer talent and grassroots activity across the ecosystem.

Tezos, one of the most mature blockchain ecosystems in the industry, has experienced record growth in 2021. Network activity is up over 1,200 percent and contract calls have surged above 2 million per month this summer.

The growth has increased interest from developers and creators looking for an inclusive and collaborative community filled with opportunity.

The community small grant programs will further support ideas, individuals, and organizations dedicated to building within the Tezos ecosystem.

Grant programs will range in requirements and funding levels depending on geographic considerations. Recipients will retain the opportunity to apply for additional grants. Participating hubs will share more information later this month, learn more about their programs below:  

Tezos Commons, an organization that empowers the Tezos community to be the architects through bootstrapping local communities, will offer community grants up to $10,000 to participants in North America. The program will focus on expanding Tezos Commons’ mission to support the builders of the Tezos ecosystem.

Tezos Commons believe that grassroots projects, while small in size, make a significant impact when it comes to scaling the network and maintaining the Tezos community. Starting today, you can apply for a small grant here

TZ APAC, one of the leading Asia adoption entities supporting the Tezos ecosystem, will offer ecosystem growth grants with the objective of cultivating new ideas through small-level funding.

The program will expand the reach of the Tezos community to new builders and creators to act as a springboard for early-stage concepts. The program will be administered in partnership with Tezos India.  

Tezos India, an organization dedicated to growing the Tezos community in India, will partner with TZ APAC to administer the ecosystem growth grant program. The initiative will expand on their current efforts to boost the grassroots growth of the Tezos ecosystem from the Tezos India Fellowship.

The fellowship offers top developers in India mentorship, the opportunity to build on the Tezos network, access to the global Tezos ecosystem, and a $2,000 stipend over the course of the 8-week mentor-led program.

TZ Connect, a Berlin-based team dedicated to advancing the Tezos ecosystem, will debut mentorship and entrepreneurial residency programs as part of the community grants initiative.

The programs will be focused on supporting builders and creators exploring Tezos with funding to initiate development and ideation of new products, applications, and tools on Tezos.

Additionally, the TZ Connect programs will focus on individuals and groups raising awareness about Tezos through educational or informational activities.

Tezos Israel, an innovation lab that serves the Israeli ecosystem in educating, training, and onboarding blockchain technology, will target students and developers seeking to build decentralized applications; the grant program will enable such individuals to do so on Tezos by giving builders the resources to ideate and design powerful applications. 

Tezos Africa, an organization supporting the adoption of Tezos in the region, will offer grants to support projects uniquely tailored to solve local challenges throughout Africa.

The existing chapters already covering North Africa, West, Central and East Africa will assist in selecting the best initiatives thanks to their local expertise. The grants aim to support activities and initiatives across the region to introduce young people in Africa to Blockchain and Tezos.

Developing On Tezos

On Tezos, developers can create powerful applications using tools that support a variety of programming languages. Game developers, music labels, NFT artists, sporting franchises, central banks, real estate developers, global NGOs, and more are all building on Tezos.

Tezos has a growing DeFi ecosystem with ERC-20 bridges for low-gas cross-chain utility, yield farming protocols, and surging AMM platforms.

What sets Tezos apart from other blockchain protocols is that it is built to remain state-of-the-art. Its modular architecture and formal upgrade mechanism minimizes disruptions while offering regular upgradability and enhanced functionality over time.

Tezos has undergone six network upgrades to reduce gas fees, improve token standards, increase transaction speed, and more.

Upgrades on Tezos are made possible by on-chain governance where continuous improvements are proposed, adopted, and deployed without forks.
