Request partially funded[edit]

@Nasirkhan: Thank you for your submission. Your request is partially funded for up to US$1200 (airfare and local transportation). The committee is unable to approve funding for "other" items. However, if during your trip to the conference, unexpected eligible expenses are incurred, please submit your receipts for them together with your flight and local transportation receipts when you submit your grant report. We will be glad to reimburse you for them. At this time, I will reach out to you via email from grantsadmin(_AT_), so that we may proceed with issuing your grant agreement. -- Best wishes, Jtud (WMF) (talk) 01:52, 8 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

NOTE: This request is one of five funded through an experimental fiscal sponsorship of a closely aligned partner organization, as solicited by Creative Commons staff for their 2015 Global Summit event. Though TPS served as a provisional vehicle for this sponsorship, the usual TPS selection procedures did not apply. Instead, as part of the terms of the fiscal sponsorship, Creative Commons requested that WMF guarantee approval of requests that would be submitted by a list of five applicants independently selected by Creative Commons. WMF was provided with the list of applicants for pre-screening and approval. These terms allowed Creative Commons autonomy to select the applicants they considered most high-value for their event and to assure those applicants of financial aid. Consequently, the associated requests should be considered part of a fiscal sponsorship experiment not subject to the typical TPS review process. They may not necessarily reflect the usual priorities and criteria of the TPS program.
