Education Initiatives: The NEAR Grants Program is excited to support anyone adding educational resources to the ecosystem. Create tutorials, write documentation, make videos, build workshops, empower developers. Education Grants range from $1,000 to $10,000 USD depending on the scope of the project and size of the team.

Startup Grants: For entrepreneurs looking to bootstrap a dApp into the NEAR ecosystem, these grants provide network credits equivalent to $3,000 USD, $5,000 USD, and $10,000 USD. Successful grantees can re-apply for another grant upon completion of milestones/user onboarding. (If you’re building a dApp or project that has a high volume of established users, please contact us directly at grants@near.org and we can help with more customized onboarding credits.)

**Note, if you are a start-up you can also apply for the "Open Source & Public Goods" grants (specifically for the open-source components of your project, which you can detail how others in the community can re-use or benefit from those modules)**

Open Source & Public Goods Grants: These grants are for teams developing open source components, whether standalone or as part of a project. (This means you can still apply in this category if you’re building a startup, but please clearly specify which components will be open-source.)

Grants can range from $1k to a maximum of $30k USD (with the exception of teams invited to submit an application for Maintainer grants, Major Integration grants, and/or Meta Guild grants).
