Call for Proposals - Small Development Grants - Summer 2018
NumFOCUS invites proposals from its sponsored and affiliated projects for targeted small development grants. This is the second of three small grant cycles NumFOCUS plans to offer in 2018.
There are no restrictions on what the funding can be used for. Code development, documentation work, educational, sustainability, and diversity initiatives, or other types of projects are all eligible.
Only one application may be submitted per project (per grant funding cycle).
For examples of grants that were funded in the first round, see here: https://www.numfocus.org/blog/numfocus-awards-development-grants-to-open-source-projects-spring-2018
Up to $3,000 per proposal
Allocated funding is $20,000 for this cycle; depending on the number and quality of proposals this may be adjusted up or down.
Proposals must be approved by the leadership of a NumFOCUS sponsored or affiliated project.
Proposed work must have a clear outcome, achievable within 2018.
The call is open to applicants from any nationality and can be performed at any university, institute or business worldwide (US export laws permitting).
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
