Dear Wikimedians,

Apologies for cross-posting, particularly to those who may have already read on other mailing list. I think you may find the announcement below interesting and worth your notice.

Last April 5th the Education team at the Wikimedia Foundation announced the launch of the Wikimedia & Education Greenhouse. The W&E Greenhouse is a fully immersive co-learning experience that lasts 9 months and is designed for emerging leaders in our movement who believe in the value of Wikimedia projects in education. It will equip participants with the skills, knowledge, and support to bring their ideas to life and scale them into high-impact education initiatives in their community. 

The W&E Greenhouse has two modalities of participation: you can apply as a team or as an individual. Applying as a team means that you present an idea for an education project you want to develop in your local community. One team will be selected to receive seed funding for their project, on-site mentoring and support from WMF staff, and access to a free project management online course. Applying as an individual means completing a short form expressing your interest and motivation, and this will give you access to the free online course. So far we have received applications from all over the world and we are very excited to keep reading about the amazing education projects you want to develop. You can apply as a team or as an individual before May 12.

We have prepared some resources to support your applications:

- Overview of the W&E Greenhouse

- What topics will be covered in the online course?

- What is the timeline of the online course?

- How do I start with a team application?

- What is the team application like? (video guide)
