SCF Round #9

Is there a change you can imagine that would make the world a better place? A need out there that's not addressed by current technology? Some content, resource, or event that would help people better understand how and why to build on Stellar? Apply to the SCF with your Stellar-based project and request the budget you need to take it to the next level. 

Selected projects will have a chance to get feedback, engage the vibrant community of Stellar developers and enthusiasts, and win lumen grants! Applications open September 29, 2021, and we're giving away 3.5 million lumens . We can't wait to see what you build!
