The Sui Foundation's Developer Grant program funds developers who are building natively on the Sui network, as part of its mission to steward the growth and adoption of the Sui ecosystem. Sui is excited to announce that eight community projects have been awarded grants, joining our original cohort of Sui Foundation Developer Grant awardees. These projects cover a range of areas, from gaming to finance, productivity to governance, and all have the potential to contribute to the Sui network. In this round of grants, individual awards range from $15K to $50K, with a total of $230K being granted.

Sui Foundation welcomes applications for developer grants on a rolling basis. The current group of grantees were selected from applications submitted before January 19, 2023, and any projects submitted since then are presently under review.

All builders within the Sui community are encouraged to apply for the developer grant program, which aims to support open-source projects with a strong ability to execute and can uniquely contribute to the Sui ecosystem. Update the list of Developer Grant Recipients below.
