Financial Assistance Consideration

Applicants for Community Pioneer Domains may also apply for Financial Assistance Consideration. To apply, an Applicant must complete a Financial Assistance Consideration request form ( doc | pdf ) and submit it along with the Proposal (Application Form). In order to qualify for the Financial Assistance Consideration, an application must meet all of the following criteria:

  • The Proposal must be non-commercial in nature and proposed by a not-for-profit organisation, OR the Proposal is submitted by a team of students or recent graduates (proposals from students or recent graduates – graduated in 2006 or later – may contain commercial business models)
  • The Proposal must hold remarkable potential for bringing substantial benefit to the community, especially for the Asia Internet community
  • The Applicant must demonstrate decent capability to raise enough support, including operational and financial support if the Domain Name of Interest is allocated

The Financial Assistance Consideration provides a waiver for the Marketing Commitment Deposit as well as the Administration Fee. The Applicant must still however make a Dispute Deposit for the amount equal to the Challenge Fee. An application that has been granted Financial Assistance Consideration does not automatically pass the evaluation process for a Pioneer Domain, nor does it exempt the application from the Challenge Process.
