Wikimedia Australia is offering two Wikidata fellowships grants worth $1000 each
, Caddie Brain.

Wikimedia Australia launched its inaugural Wikidata Fellowship program today. It is offering two creative fellowships grants of $1000 (AUD) to curate a data set, develop a prototype or undertake an investigation using Wikidata. You will be matched with a Wikimedian who will mentor you throughout your project offering resources, feedback and support.

We are open to applicants from all backgrounds and skill levels, and support proposals that involve investigations. We are looking for proposals that are enthusiastic and innovative as opposed to requiring pre-existing technical skills.

Wikidata is a free and open knowledge base that can be read and edited by both humans and machines. Launched in 2012, Wikidata acts as central storage for the structured data of its Wikimedia sister projects including Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, Wiktionary, Wikisource, and others.

Applications open Monday 10 January 2022 closing midnight Sunday 27 February 2022 (whatever timezone you are in).
