The Drupal Association is pleased to announce a new pilot grant program that seeks to transform, support, and educate Drupal communities around the world. Through a limited number of Drupal Community Cultivation Grants, we are seeking to support current and future organizers and leaders of DrupalCamps, Drupal Meetups, Drupal Sprints, and other creative projects who are spreading information within the Drupal community and educating individuals outside the community about Drupal.

Working with our partner DrupalCon Inc., and partially funded by our members, two pilot grant cycles will be available to help fund creative projects and events that help our community grow. Grant awards will range from several hundred to several thousand dollars per project. Grant Cycle 1 begins immediately and closes on July 31st. Grants for this cycle will be announced at DrupalCon London. Grant Cycle 2 will begin on August 1st and will run through September 30th with awards being announced no later than October 15th.

What will be funded?

We are looking for creative ideas that enable us to achieve our mission of fostering and supporting the Drupal software project and its amazing community. Specifically we are looking to fund projects that

  • Educate people about Drupal
  • Engage the community to learn more about and become more involved in the project
  • Engage current and potential community members in learning more about the community through events such as DrupalCamps, Drupal Jams, code sprints, FOSS days, etc.

That's what I first remember hearing from Mike when we started the Florida/Orlando g.d.o. I'm so glad to see his continued evangelism for Drupal continue to spread. It's awesome to be part of such an inclusive community and has been my continued inspiration. Thanks Mike!!

Well, more training IS needed, so this is a smart move. I wish I could get one to fund some contrib sphere work I want to do, but just as well - clear guidelines are a good thing.
