Call for Individual Engagement Grant proposals
The Wikimedia Foundation and the Individual Engagement Grants Committee invite you to submit and review proposals for community-led experiments to improve Wikimedia!
Individual Engagement Grants support individuals and small teams to organize projects for 6 months. You can get funding to turn your idea for improving Wikimedia projects into action, with a grant for online community organizing, outreach and partnerships, tool-building, or research. Funding is available for a few hundred dollars up to $30,000.
Proposals for this round are due 31 March 2014:
Some examples of projects we’ve funded in the past:
- Organizing social media for Chinese Wikipedia ($350 for materials)
- Improving gadgets for Visual Editor ($4500 for developers)
- Coordinating free access to reliable sources for Wikipedians ($7500 for project management, consultants, and materials)
- Building community and strategy for Wikisource (€10000 for organizing and travel)
