Cesium is excited to announce a new cohort of grantees. These recipients impressed us with their commitment to strengthening and supporting the 3D geospatial ecosystem.
Ecosystem Grant applications remain open on a rolling basis. We’ve also recently expanded the program to include MicroGrants, which provide $800 to support students and educators while they complete the Cesium Certified Developer Program.
