Hello Sumit.iitp, thank you for your patience as I reviewed your grant request. I am approving your grant proposal. I have one follow up question:

  • For your outreach activity, would you be able to host an outreach activity at the event? From your description it is unclear if you will be able to host a meetup with the researchers and industry practitioners or if you'll be meeting with them individually. Please let me know.

I will follow up via email regarding instructions for receiving funds. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 23:51, 10 September 2018 (UTC)


To answer your question, I will be giving a 15min presentation at the conference on the work related to Wikipedia that is accepted at the conference. Apart from that, I'll be meeting researchers and industry practitioners individually.

Request for changes because of final plans[edit]


Thanks for approving the request. There have been some changes in the total amount required as my plans have finalized, and hence I'm requesting a change here. Please find below the details of the final amount requested:

  • Travel from Bengaluru, India to New York, USA: Rs 40000 ~ 540$
  • Living expenses in New York from 5th to 7th November 2018 ~ 815$
  • Conference registration fees - 275$
  • Contingency( unforseen expenses ) - 150$

Total - 540 + 815 + 275 + 150 = 1780$
