Hello!

the launch of two new grants programs [1].

promote new experiments and sustain ideas that work.


   - Program launches July 1, 2016 with an open call for new grant
   proposals.
   - Up to USD 100,000 for projects up to 12 months. Submissions accepted
   quarterly.

   - Submit your candidacy by July 15, 2016 to participate in the first
   round.

The Conference Support Committee will review and advise on large
conferences and events.


   - Program launches July 1, 2016.
   - Submissions accepted monthly.
   - Interested in joining? Learn more here:

   - Submit your candidacy by June 1, 2016 to participate in the launch.

Why should you serve on a grants committee?

   -

   Make a big difference by supporting applicants and grantees that are
   doing projects to improve content and increase participation across the
   Wikimedia movement.
   -

   Build yours skills and experience by participating in our innovative
   participatory grantmaking programs.
   -

   Interact with volunteers from all over the world.


Do you know somebody who you think would be perfect for this role?

   -

   We love referrals and want to build diverse committees!  Please
   encourage them to join.


Cheers,

Alex
