Thanks for the clarification Sylvia, I wasn't sure if it was open to international applicants or not. 


Perhaps then if anyone knows of a US-based CN, forward it to them.

Hi everyone,


I just came across this opportunity sponsored by Mozilla that seems perfect for this group:


Wireless Innovation for a Networked Society (WINS) Challenges


How do you connect the unconnected? Mozilla and the U.S. National Science Foundation are looking for innovative wireless technologies that connect people to the Internet and to each other. A total of $2 million in prize money is available for wireless solutions that get people online after disasters or that connect communities lacking reliable Internet access.


Challenge 1: Off-the-Grid Internet Challenge


How can we leverage wireless technology to keep people connected to each other and to vital information sources in the aftermath of a disaster where Internet access is unavailable or compromised? The Off-the-Grid Internet Challenge seeks solutions that can provide connectivity in one of the most challenging situations: the immediate aftermath of a major disaster. When disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes strike, communications networks are often among the first pieces of critical infrastructure to overload or fail, leaving individuals disconnected from one another and from essential services and communications. With a total of $1M in prize money, the Off-the-Grid Internet Challenge seeks solutions that help individuals wirelessly access each other and information services like maps and messaging following a disaster.
