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
Conference grant proposals are accepted three times each year
If you are planning to request more than $15,000 USD, you must notify a program officer by email 8 to 12 months before your event
