Conference & Events grant program update
Please note that starting September 9, 2019 all recent temporary restrictions for Conference & Events grants have been lifted, and all grant proposals will be welcomed and considered.
However, as aligned with the Wikimedia Movement’s strategic direction, striving to be a robust and Thriving movement, we will highly welcome and prioritize proposals:
- From emerging and underrepresented communities from all parts of the world, that demonstrate growth and capacity building as core goals and outcomes.
- That consider partnering with affiliates and creating regional/thematic coalitions within the movement, to align agendas, enhance equity and to invest in movement leadership infrastructure, for a greater strategic impact.
- That include an outreach component by partnering with open knowledge allies, to expand our global footprint.
- That welcome and empower new participants and contributors in the Wikimedia movement, that will include a clear and scalable newcomers engagement plan.
For detailed information please review the Wikimedia Foundation Conference and Event Grants Eligibility criteria, and the Wikimedia Foundation’s Medium-term plan goals.
