Hello @WJifar (WMF):, I've submitted this proposal earlier this month. I'll be glad if you or any other esteemed member from your team reviews and reverts to me. Thank you very much!Thank you very much! --Muzammil (talk) 13:59, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Not Funded[edit]

Hello Muzammil, please accept my sincere apology for taking a long time to respond to your request. We've been inundated with requests at the rapid grants program and we're slowly making our way through all of them. I see that your request has now passed. But I wanted to let you know why we will not be funding your request.

  1. As you can see in our eligibility criteria maximum requests are for 2000 USD. Your requested amount was $946 USD above the limit.
  2. You can also see in our eligible travel section that we support local and regional travel and you were proposing traveling from India to Las Vegas.

Again, I am sorry I wasn't able to get back to you on this earlier. I hope this information will provide guidance in the future for requesting a travel grant. Please email us at <rapidgrants@wikimedia.org> if you have further questions. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 03:36, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you, Woubzena for reviewing my grant proposal. I accept and welcome any decision on my request. However, if my application had been reviewed earlier, I could perhaps have tried to address the foremost objection in the eligibility criteria, i.e. $946 USD above the limit by perhaps seeking support from an agency / organization in India as HIV/AIDS is still one of the burning issues across the globe. --Muzammil (talk) 16:48, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Hello Muzammil, you make a fair point. As I had mentioned our program has been a bit back logged and we're actively working to improve our response time. I do take your feedback to heart and hope you'll have a better experience with our program next time. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 18:44, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
