about the grant program

The Graph Foundation is committed to the well being of protocol and The Graph ecosystem. The goal of the Grants Program is to encourage development on The Graph Network and tooling, collaboration with third-party developers, expand the usage of subgraphs and grow the community of network participants. 

The Graph Foundation aims to support hundreds of third-party developers, Indexers, Curators and other contributors. All financial grants will be subject to a vote by The Graph Council.

The Graph Council will carry out its mandate to oversee several core functions:

  1. The Graph Foundation Operations
  2. Grants and Ecosystem Funding
  3. Protocol Upgrades
  4. Protocol Parameterization
  5. Emergency Protocol Operations

projects to apply

While there are many projects and ideas that deserve funding, the most immediate wishlist for The Graph includes:

  • Protocol Rewards Calculators
  • Indexer Agent Strategies
  • Unit Testing Frameworks
  • Wallet and dApp Browser Integrations
  • Static Analysis Tools for Subgraphs
  • New Subgraphs for Smart Contracts
  • Subgraph Features
  • Decentralized Applications built on The Graph
  • Educational Initiatives (eg. GraphQl, Javascript communities)
  • Community Building for Network Participants

who can apply

Developers, project teams, non-profit organizations, researchers, community builders, designers, writers and academics are all encouraged to apply! Make sure to include all relevant descriptions about the project, the problem being solved and anticipated milestones.

application process

If you are interested in building on The Graph and receiving funding, please apply here

When applying, keep the following in mind:

  • Be specific about your project's objectives, the milestones and roadmap
  • Share all relevant research and thinking - even if you're in pre-development, we can help!
  • Make it clear how the project is aligned with The Graph and could benefit the ecosystem
  • Identify gaps in The Graph that could use improvement, do you have a solution?
  • If you think your idea is needed, make sure to make the case for it

If your project is selected to be considered for a grant, The Graph Foundation team will be in touch to meet the team and discuss next steps. The timing and size of funding will depend on the project’s deliverables, milestones and overall priority. Grants decisions will be communicated quarterly but the application form will remain open.

We are thrilled to be launching The Graph Grants Program and can’t wait to see what the community builds!
