Linux Australia is pleased and very proud to announce the opening of the 2019 Linux Australia Grants program. Up to $AUD 35,000 is available for distribution to open source, open data, open government, open education, open hardware and open culture projects as part of the organisation’s support of free and open source systems and communities in the region.
In 2018, the Linux Australia Grants program supported Drupal, Code Club, CiviCRM and a hackathon. Details about these grants can be found in our 2017-2018 Annual Report.
More information about the grants process can be found on our Grants webpage at https://linux.org.au/projects/grants after logging in as a member. To submit an application use the form provided at the bottom of the Grants page. If you are not a member of Linux Australia please apply at: https://linux.org.au/membership/
As in 2018, grant submissions will be discussed on a separate mailing list rather than the general linux-aus mailing list. If you are interested in following along with the grant process or providing feedback about grant submissions, please subscribe to the mailing list here: http://lists.linux.org.au/mailman/listinfo/grants
Please share this announcement with colleagues, projects and community members who may find it of interest. Feel free to contact the Linux Australia Council or myself if you have any questions or would like to privately discuss anything related to the Grants process.
Looking forward to seeing the submissions!
