The Amaze Digital Accessibility Grant
At Deque we are committed to developing new technologies that make the web accessible and to fostering new talent and projects that can help us achieve this mission. In this spirit, we would like to announce the Amaze Digital Accessibility Grant.
The Amaze Digital Accessibility Grant is a grant for $10,000 that will be awarded to the applicant whose proposal best exemplifies an innovative technology or project that will contribute to making the web accessible.
