Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Open call for Project Grant proposals
(July 1 - August 2)
To: Wikimedia India Community list <wikimediaindia-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
The Wikimedia Foundation Project Grants program will launch its first
open call on July 1. We will be accepting proposals through August
2nd for new ideas to improve Wikimedia projects.
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project>. Project Grants will
replace Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) and Project & Event Grants
Funds are available to support individuals, groups and organizations
to implement new experiments and proven ideas, whether focused on
building a new tool or gadget, organizing a better process on your
wiki, researching an important issue, coordinating an editathon series
or providing other support for community-building.
Ideas from the current Inspire Campaign on addressing harassment are
very welcome. <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Inspire>
Do you have have a good idea, but would like some feedback before
applying? Put it into the IdeaLab, where volunteers and staff can give
you advice and guidance on how to bring it to life.
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab> Once your idea is
ready, it can be easily migrated into a grant request.
Marti Johnson and I will also be hosting weekly proposals clinics via
Hangouts for real-time discussions about the Project Grants Open Call.
We’ll answer questions and help you make your proposal better. Dates
and times are as follows:
* Tuesday, July 5 - 16:00 UTC
* Thursday, July 14 - 02:00 UTC
* Wednesday, July 20 - 15:00 UTC
* Friday, July 29 - 02:00 UTC
* Tuesday, August 2 - 01:30 UTC
* Tuesday, August 2 - 16:00 UTC
Links for Hangouts are available here:
We are excited to see your grant ideas that will support our community
and make an impact on the future of Wikimedia projects. Put your idea
into motion, and submit your proposal between July 1 and August 2!
Please feel free to get in touch with me (awang@xxxxxxxxxxxxx) or
Marti Johnson (mjohnson@xxxxxxxxxxxxx) with questions about getting
started with your project!
