FUNding Frida is an annual mini-competition established in 2008 at the Summer Meeting in Durham, NH. Several $5,000 awards are given to members to fund small projects that are inspired by ESIP collaboration or participation. In 2009, the ESIP Federation created a student competition with awards of $3,000.

This competition serves several purposes:

  • promotes and rewards new collaborations or bridges between ESIP projects and technologies, so that novel outcomes can be explored.
  • fosters small-scale projects of real value by supporting programmer salary, travel—whatever is needed to realize the proposed work.
  • showcases how the ESIP Federation can leverage current technologies and member skills to add new services with a modest amount of effort(and funding).
  • rewards members who are looking to explore new collaborations and new ideas inspired by other Federation member activities.
