The rapid grants program is experiencing a large volume of applications. This has affected our ability to respond to proposals in the same month as they have been submitted. Thank you for your patience as we work through the backlog of requests.
Grant applications are accepted in any language. We will support translation for applications and discussions as needed.
Choose one of the application forms below. We've created specific applications for common types of requests. If your project combines several activities, pick the one that fits best, adding information as needed, or use the "Other" application form.
Create your application by typing a name for your page in the format of YourName/Project 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. For example, "WM ZA/Wiki From Above" or "UG EG/Wiki Loves Monuments 2016". See here for all affiliate abbreviations.
Follow the instructions that appear when you create the application.
When to Apply
Applications will only be accepted between 1st and 15th of each month.
Grantees will be expected to respond to questions on the discussion page within a week of questions/comments being posted. If no response has been given, the application will be declined but you may resubmit with responses in the next month of applications.
Decisions will be made on an application by the end of each month.
Apply here if your proposal does not fit in any of the above groups.
This Rapid Grant application will ask the following questions:
Tell us how you'll carry out your project. What will you and other organizers spend your time doing?
How will you let others in your community know about your project (please provide links to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions)?
Why are you targeting a specific audience?
What will you have done at the end of your project?
How will you follow-up with people that are involved with your project?
