Comcast Technology Fund - US Ignite Application Summit 2013

  1. 1. Comcast Tech Research & Development Grants Fund June 25, 2013
  2. 2. Types of Grants General Research Grants A General Research Grant provides an unrestricted award of funds to support researchers at colleges and universities. These grants are focused on supporting excellent technical research in a wide variety of fields that are relevant to the broadband industry and/or to Comcast specifically. Targeted Research Grants While many Targeted Research Grant ideas may be suggested or generated by our internal teams, we may also fund specific research suggested by submitters that is also of interest to Comcast or to the Internet and broadband industries. In contrast to General Research Grants, Targeted Research Grants are more narrowly tailored and typically study more specific issues. Targeted Open Source Development Grants Targeted Open Source Development Grants are intended to fund new or continued development of open source software in areas of interest to Comcast or of benefit to the Internet and broadband industries. This can fund a range of development, from adding specific features to an existing open source project, to general support of an open source project in which we are interested. 2
