The Wikimedia Foundation Project Grants program launches its second open
call today, September 12. We will be accepting proposals through October
11 for new ideas to improve Wikimedia projects.
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.
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:
