Better Internet – Better Future


About Us

Larus Foundation is a non-profit organization that was established in 2018. With our work, we strive to increase public engagement in the process of Internet policy development to make sure the Internet infrastructure remains free and fair for the foreseeable future. Through our Fellowship program, we support various stakeholders, particularly students and academics, to take an active part in Internet governance. We do so by encouraging their participation in the policy-making forums and their attendance of the policy-making conferences organized by the various Regional Internet Registries (RIRs).

We understand that currently, the involvement of the general public in matters of Internet governance remains limited. The Larus Foundation seeks to change the status quo by sponsoring capable candidates interested in the issues of Internet policy. We firmly believe that the lack of necessary funds should not stand in the way of those who want to pursue a career in Internet governance.

Generally, we support the following parties:

The general public through various educational initiatives

Those interested in pursuing a career in Internet governance through grants and various financial support

Thus, we aim to have a positive impact on the future of the Internet for generations to come.
