[Wikimedia-l] Open call for Project Grant proposals (Jul 1-Aug 2)

Alex Wang
Hi everyone,

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>.

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 and IRC 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 and the IRC channel are available here: <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Events#Upcoming_events>

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 ([hidden email]) or Marti
Johnson ([hidden email]) with questions about getting started with
your project!

Warm regards,

Alex & Marti
