Conference & Event Grants

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

Important information:

  • For grants under $2,000 USD, please see the Rapid Grants program
