In the first round of Project Grants, 13 eligible proposals were submitted for review. The committee recommended 6 for funding, with a total of $180,396 in funded projects. WMF has now approved all 6 grants. Here’s what we’re funding.
Software - 3 projects funded
Improving the citation ecosystem for Wikipedia so editors can more easily look up relevant sources could greatly improve their productivity and ease of editing. This grant supports the development of Librarybase, a project to develop structured bibliographic data around citations. There are numerous benefits to creating this structure, especially for hard-to-model books, including the generation of source recommendations for specific topic areas or WikiProjects, migration of notable references to Wikidata, and more.
Offline outreach - 2 projects funded
Research - 1 project funded

The current call for round 2 of Project Grants ends October 11th. The next open call begins December 19th. 
Congratulations to the successful grantees!
