Grants talk:IdeaLab/Reach out to University departments of women's & Gender Studies, Queer Studies, ethnic studies, etc.
Hi @Jonotrain:, thanks for posting this Idea! I think it's got heaps of potential and I wanted to check in and see if you are interested in developing it further (and if funding is needed, in turning this into a grant proposal -- the Inspire campaign is offering $250,000 in grants funding to gendergap-related projects). There's a couple of days left before the deadline on March 31, if you want to add more detail, rally people to help out, etc. --Skud (WMF) (talk) 00:45, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi @Skud: - I'm glad you like the idea. I'm definitely interested in expanding the idea. I'm new to this sort of thing, so I'm not sure where to begin. But a grant proposal sounds great. I think that creating a writing prize (it could be small - something in the $500-$5000 range) for best new article or best substantial edit would be a great place to start. Then we could publicize the contest by reaching out to relevant university departments. How do I go about asking for the funds?
