Turn Ideas
into impact

Request Awards up to $100K worth of XLM* for building impactful projects on Soroban and Stellar. Strengthen the ecosystem’s infrastructure and tooling, lead the next wave of DeFi applications, and build solutions for those who need it most.

Award Process

Once you have a plan for your Stellar and/or Soroban project, create a submission for an SCF Activation Award (up to $50K worth of XLM*) to prove your intent. After you’ve finished your deliverables of the Activation Award, you can submit your project to receive a larger Community Award (up to $100K worth of XLM*). Submission deadlines are every four weeks.

Submit your project

Submission deadlines are every four weeks and both the Activation and Community Award phases within a round overlap. Submit to the round with the next upcoming deadline!
