Stage 2 Funding is now open!

The Wikimedia Research Fund provides support to individuals, groups, and organizations with an interest in conducting research on or about Wikimedia projects. Submissions are encouraged from research disciplines including (but not limited to) the humanities, social sciences, computer science, education, and law.

The fund prioritises applicants who:

  • have limited access to research funding
  • are in regions of the world where the Wikimedia research community has less representation
  • are proposing work in coordination or collaboration with Wikimedia affiliates
  • and/or are proposing work that has potential for direct, positive impact on their local communities or the global Wikimedia communities.

To qualify for the General Support Fund, all applicants must contact their Regional Program Officer, Jacqueline Chen, for assistance and guidance before submitting the application. Only proposals from applicants who have contacted their program officer and received a confirmation for the application are eligible for review.

Information on eligibility criteria, application forms and guides can be viewed on the Grants Page on Metawiki.

Applications close March 14 2024.
