community grants[edit source]

What is the procedure to seeks for a grants as a community who doesn't have any affiliates. or can we submit multiple individual grants to meet the local meetup expenses? -Neechalkaran (talk) 02:22, 22 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Neechalkaran: Feel free to apply as an affiliate if you are part of an organized Wikimedia community. However, you will need to provide proof of your work as a community for the last years. --Csisc (talk) 17:27, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Affiliate and individual grant[edit source]

Good evening, I would like to ask whether a person could apply for both individual grants and be a part of the affiliate grant? where is the best to apply in? Waiting for your response, thank you in advance--Sandra Hanbo (talk) 11:14, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sandra Hanbo: Thank you for your interesting question. The answer is no. You have either to apply as an individual or as a part of a Wikimedia affiliate. The best choice depends on what your affiliate, particularly Wikimedia Levant, decide to do as a community. You are kindly invited to contact them to ask whether they will organize a session or apply for a scholarship. If not, feel free to apply as an individual to the grant. --Csisc (talk) 17:25, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
