Opportunities provided by TPS[edit]

  • Travel funding provides opportunities to deeply connect participants to the movement and each other.
  • Participation Support demonstrates an opportunity to reach a range of new Wikimedia grantees, including women and participants in the Global South.


  • The volume of requests and grants made in this program must be increased in order to fully realize its potential; the scale of use is too small with the current scope and setup.
  • Program pages should be redesigned for ease-of-use and to generate joy.
  • Simpler application methods should be investigated in order to keep the process open to a range of applicants.

SCOPE OF WORK for Travel and Participation Support Grants[edit]

TPS should fit into overall concepts of the look and feel of grants pages, be informative and inviting, & explain the purpose and intention of Wikimedia grantmaking. timing approximation in green
