Wikigrants are grants distributed by Wikimedia Norge. We hope for as many applications as possible! There will be two application deadlines in 2017: 15 February and 15 September.
All contributors to the various Wikimedia projects can apply for grants. The maximum amount is 8,000 NOK. The grant shall be used to implement activities that support one or more Wikimedia projects. Examples for activities you can apply for are:
- Support for attending relevant conferences, like hackathons and Wikimania
- Expenses related to photo safaris
- Implementing editathons or tours for Wikipedians
- Travel expenses to visit archives, museums, libraries and other institutions
- Expenses for other activities that contribute content to the Wikimedia projects

How to apply for a wikigrant
- Apply for a grant
- In the application you should explain what your idea is about, how you will implement it, and when you plan to do so.
- Enter a title for your proposal in the box below to create a proposal.
- Blog post about finished project
- After a grant has been given and the project has been implemented, we ask that you write a blog post about your project and deliver an overview of what the grant has been used for. The blog post will be published on Wikimedia Norge's blog so that other volunteer contributors can see what projects have been implemented, and we will use the blog posts as references for Wikimedia Norge's reports to the Wikimedia Foundation.
- Are you uncertain about whether you should apply or have any other questions? Please get in touch at email@example.com.
