Submission deadlines are every 4 weeks, followed by a review and selection process based on community input. Reference the SCF Handbook to learn more.
Companies and developers building on Stellar and/or Soroban submit project information, key deliverables for project development for the next three months, and a budget of up to $150K* worth of XLM before the submission deadline.
Each submission is reviewed by a selection panel in accordance with the Submission Eligibility Guidelines. Selected projects also need to pass the required eligibility and compliance checks and confirm compliance with Participant Eligibility Guidelines.
Selected submissions receive an XLM award equal to 10% of their requested budget in order to complete their first deliverable and demonstrate intent to continue with the project.
After the selection panel confirms that the project successfully completed its first deliverable, verified community members can vote for projects to be awarded the full budget amount requested in their submission. Click here for more information.

* The amounts shown are budget requests and not (yet) granted to the projects. During the Community Vote phase, voters can indicate whether the project deserves the amount it's asking for (budget request). The total pool of XLM available for SCF#11 is 8M XLM. SDF will allocate the XLM equivalent of the specified USD budget of the submissions with the most votes in descending order of rank until the earlier of (i) the XLM Pool is fully distributed (ii) there is not sufficient XLM remaining in the XLM pool to fully fund the next ranked submission or (iii) there are no remaining eligible submissions. The USD valuation of the budget request in XLM will be calculated using the CF Stellar Lumens-Dollar Settlement Price on December 5, 2022 as administered, maintained, and reported by the cryptocurrency index provider CF Benchmarks Ltd. (using the ticker “XLMUSD_RR”) (available at https://www.cfbenchmarks.com/indices/XLMUSD_RR). Learn more in the SCF Handbook.
