Grant Advisory Committee/Candidates

Please volunteer to help us make better decisions about grants! The GAC handles between 3 and 12 new grant proposals a month. Some proposals are longer or more complicated than others, and some warrant more discussion than others. It is expected that a GAC volunteer devote at least three or four hours a week to GAC work (see GAC description), assuming there are open requests or reports.

GAC members may have any other role in the movement, including chapter board memberships and other Wikimedia committee memberships, except for membership in the Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC). If an active GAC member is elected or appointed to the FDC, their GAC membership will immediately lapse. An active term on the GAC can have a positive bearing on a subsequent bid to join the FDC.

If you are interested in joining the GAC in the coming selection process – one is likely to take place toward the end of 2014 – please sign below. Please include a brief statement about your background and involvement demonstrating you meet the criteria.

Adethya Sudarsanan

I am an Wikipedian on English Wikipedia. I have fair knowledge on editing Wikipedia. My association with Wikipedia started in early 2008. I have been an on-field volunteer whose primary responsiblities include assisting & organizing Wiki events, collaborate with other Wikipedia/external volunteers to provide necessary support. I have also been a speaker at WikiConference India in 2011, where I provided a talk on how to make Wikipedia more accessible on the Internet.

I have been associated with other not-for-profits in leadership positions where my responsibilites have been driving initiatives across the organization, drive IT related initiatives to better productivity & engage the community in my activities. Enable the common man to understand our mission and derive the benefit of crowd effort for the betterment of the society

As a part of my contribution to GAC, I would love to join the committee as a someone who would bring value to the committee and be just in awarding grants!

Hi Adethya. Thank you for your interest in the GAC. We have closed this round of GAC recruiting, but will leave your candidacy up for our next round - most likely in Fall 2014. We'll be in touch then to see if you are still interested. Please also note that all community members are welcome to comment on PEG proposals. Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 11:56, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
