---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Katy Love <kl...@wikimedia.org> Date: 12 March 2018 at 23:38 Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Travel & Participation Support program closing To: Wikimedia Mailing List <wikimedi...@lists.wikimedia.org> Hi there, Wikimedians, I am writing to let you know that the WMF Community Resources team is closing one of our smaller funding programs, Travel and Participation Support (TPS) . *TPS will no longer accept applications as of May 1, 2018.* Some background: TPS was created in 2011 as a movement outreach program. It reimburses travel expenses for Wikimedian volunteers who present about Wikimedia at non-Wikimedia events. Its closure comes as a consequence of the grants restructure following our 2015 Reimagining Grants consultation.  As we have redesigned our grant programs to better meet the needs of our stakeholders, we are no longer resourced to support TPS as a separate program. *We will continue to* *support travel requests as part of our other grant programs*, as follows: *Rapid Grants* will now fund travel requests for non-Wikimedia events from individuals for up to $2,000 USD, prioritizing applications that include all of the following: * Wikimedian presenters who have a special area of expertise in relation to their target audience (for example, a psychology professor who is sharing about Wikimedia projects at an academic conference for other psychology professionals) * outreach activity with a training component and a plan for online follow-up providing ongoing mentorship and support (editing training, editathon, etc.) * regional travel requests under $2,000 USD *Rapid Grants* will continue to fund travel expenses for local Wikimedia events. Learn more here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/ wiki/Grants:Project/Rapid *Conference and Events Grants* will continue to support travel scholarships for Wikimedia events. Note that this funding is awarded to conference organizers who then manage requirements for participants. Requests for more than $10,000 USD are required to start the application process 6 months before the date of the proposed event.
