Shuttleworth Fellowship is probably the best fit of many options. We've applied twice over the years and not received the fellowship. We should still apply again. We have this list: https://wiki.snowdrift.coop/market-research/grants And I have a list of more to consider and add to that, and would be happy to see this German thing and other appropriate stuff added. Anyone interested in helping us decide and pursue such resources is welcome to do that. It's hard to judge priority because applying and not getting them does take away from our direct work.
