From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Project Grants will be reviewed by a volunteer committee.
Invitations for Project Grants committee will begin in April 2016.
The committee always has at least 15 members. Each member each serves either a six- or twelve-month term:
- Kirill Lokshin
- Lluis tgn
- Netha Hussain
- Reasonable facility with English, for reviewing and discussing grant proposals.
- Experience with the Wikimedia movement, and at least one Wikimedia project.
- Experience with Wikimedia programs.
- Understanding of diversity, including cultural, linguistic, and gender differences.
- Commitment to the Friendly Space Expectations, and to engaging in supportive dialogue with applicants and grantees.
- Consistent record of constructive engagement in community discussions, and an orientation toward collaborative problem solving.
Desired (but not strictly needed):
- Experience leading, coordinating, or managing projects with an intended on-wiki or online impact.
- Background in handling externally provided money and working within budgets, preferably in a non-profit context.
- Have applied for grants or worked in grant programs (in the Wikimedia, academic, or wider non-profit world).
Other criteria notes:
- Members may apply for a Project Grant themselves, but they will recuse themselves from reviewing proposals in the same category as their own during that round.
- Members may serve concurrently on this committee in addition to the Simple APG committee and the Conference & Travel Support committee. They may not serve on both the Funds Dissemination Committee and the Project Grants Committee.
- Current staff of chapters or the Wikimedia Foundation can participate on this committee in a volunteer capacity.
