In 2015, eduVPN started as a project at the Dutch research and education network SURF. SURF continues to play a leading role in the project, but now eduVPN is deployed in a number of countries: Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Morocco, The Netherlands, Norway, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Uganda and Ukraine!

eduVPN is currently a program under the Commons Conservancy, a non-for-profit foundation focusing on free and open source projects. It is also part of the GÉANT project (GN4-3) which is co-funded by the European Union.

It has received funding from the Vietsch Foundation, RIPE and the NLnet Foundation.
