Hi everyone, 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. 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 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: * Fri, Sep 16, 1400- 1500 UTC * Tues, Sep 20, 0100 - 0200 UTC * Wed, Sep 28, 1400 - 1500 UTC * Tue, Oct 4, 2200 - 2300 UTC * Tues, Oct 11, 0200 - 0300 UTC * Tue, Oct 11, 1600 -1700 UTC Links for Hangouts are available here: < https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project> We are excited to see your grant ideas that will support our community and make an impact on the future of Wikimedia projects.
