IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have updated our guidelines regarding organizing in-person events with Wikimedia Foundation grant funding.
Our new COVID-19 Risk Assessment protocol for in-person gatherings is designed to be sensitive to the constantly changing circumstances around this pandemic, and allow potential grantees and community members to assess their own ability to safely host events and activities.
If you are planning an in-person event plan to request funding, please follow the steps described in these guidelines before submitting a grant proposal. For current grants already in progress, please contact your program officer if you would like to include or change your activities to include in-person activities.
Create your application by typing a name for your page in the format of YourName/Conference name in the input box below. You can use your real name or your username. If you are applying as a WMF Affiliate, please enter your affiliate abbreviation rather than a user name.
Follow the instructions that appear when you create the application.
Committee review: The Conference Grants Committee will review proposals within 2 weeks of submission. They will post feedback on the discussion page of the proposal.

Funding decision posted: The grant program officer will post a funding decision within 4 weeks of submission.
Check in calls scheduled: After approval, monthly check in calls will be scheduled with the program officer.
