Pista ng Mapa 2020 Internet Access Grant

This year’s conference has adopted an online format, and we are offering aid to help lower some technical barriers to conference participation.

In the Philipplines, one of the biggest barriers to accessing online content is obtaining Internet accesss especially now that traditional venues (Internet shops, cafés, schools, offices) remain inaccessible due to Covid-19 restrictions.

To ensure Internet access to participants of PnM20, Internet Access Grants (IAG) will be given to approved applicants based in the Philippines
