As part of the phased implementation for the new grants strategy the The Wikimedia Research and Technology Fund will officially open for applications in the early part of January 2022 beginning with the Research Fund. We will provide more details as we move closer to the launch. Please feel free to reach out on the talk page or communityresources(_AT_)wikimedia.org in the meantime to ask any specific questions.

Who we fund[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation provides support to individuals, groups, organizations and affiliates around the world to develop or improve software or conduct research that responds to Wikimedia needs.

What we fund[edit]

Research Fund

Focus on high priority open questions that the community of editors, organizers and developers face. Priority will be given to proposals from researchers in underrepresented communities with more limited alternative resources for funding and when there is an active local or global community interested in operationalizing the research findings.

Technology Fund

Focus on high priority software that the community of editors, organizers and developers need, or on software that bridges Wikimedian projects with existing infrastructure that would improve content donations from priority partners. Priority will be given to proposals from underrepresented communities with more limited alternative resources for funding and when there is an active local or global community whose work will be strategically advanced by the tool.
