The Conference & Event Grants program provides funding and planning support to groups or organizations to host local or regional conferences that bring Wikimedians together for experience sharing, skill building, and networking.
The conference grant proposal process is designed to support advance planning and collaboration so that movement events make the most of the time and money invested in them.
Funding is generally awarded to three broad categories of movement events:
Thematic events such as GLAM Bootcamp, WikiWomen's Camp and Wiki Loves Monuments International team strategy meeting
National conferences like WikiConference India, WikiConference North America
Regional affiliate meetings such as WikiArabia, CEE Meeting and Wiki Indaba
Grant requests are accepted 2 times per year following the schedule below
Contact us at conferencegrantswikimedia.org as soon as you begin planning an event to discuss timelines and eligibility. It is important to inform the conference grant program officer of your plans to apply at least two months before the application cycle begins.
