The Amaze Digital Accessibility Grant is a $10,000 grant that will be awarded to the applicant whose submission best exemplifies an innovative technology or project that will contribute to removing barriers on the web. All applications will be reviewed by a panel of Deque accessibility experts, and a winner will be selected from the finalists by Deque senior leadership team.

In addition to receiving the $10,000 grant, the winning applicant will receive a stipend of up to $5,000 to attend the 2014 CSUN Conference where they will present their project and share an update on how it’s going.

The grant website is now live at http://www.deque.com/amazegrant. Applications are due by May 1st, 2013.
