W3F Technical Grant Application Form
This form is for 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹 grant applications of a speculative nature. Please keep them specific to Substrate or Polkadot. Full details of the application process are listed at
⚠️ We usually ask teams to first consider applying via the 𝗢𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝗚𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗺, which supports grants of up to $30,000 (USD) (for initial grants, up to $100,000 for follow-up grants) and has faster processing times. Only apply via the General Grants Program if:
- you seek funding of $30,000+ and your work cannot be split into smaller milestones,
- you want your team/project information to remain private, or
- you can only accept fiat payments.
💨 While it is possible to make a private application, we will give preference to public applications that are made via a pull request in GitHub. The pull request URL will be included within this application form. For public applications where financial information is kept private, the details should be included in this form.
In this form, you will provide a description of your idea, tell us about your team, and provide a roadmap of development (including costs). The form will guide you through each step of the application.
