==Program Overview==
Mozilla Open Source Support (MOSS) is an awards program specifically focused on supporting the [ Open Source] and [ Free Software] movement, with an initial allocation a yearly budget of USD around $1 3 million.
Mozilla is a part of the Open Source and Free Software movement. We were born out of this movement. We prosper because of the technology and activism which comes from this movement. And we know that Open Source and Free Software remains a key part of the Internet and the online life we seek to build. We have had an ad-hoc grants program for many years. MOSS is a systematic way to provide a new level of support to this community.

==Mozilla ChampionsSelection Committee==
For the "Foundational Technology" track, and perhaps later for other tracks, applications need to be jointly submitted by the project and We have formed a Mozilla Champion. A Champion is an established member selection committee of the Mozilla community who knows the project concerned. Being a champion means you believe in the project 7 participants to assess awards on Tracks 1 and its impact. You believe that funds from a MOSS Award would make a meaningful difference in the success and effectiveness of the project. You believe the range of funds requested in the Award proposal is appropriate. And you believe that the project and/or the task fit the award criteria for the track you are applying for.2, as follows:
