WMF is now seeking fellowship applicants and project ideas for the
Community Fellowships Program. Community members from all Wikimedia
projects and all languages are strongly encouraged to apply by the deadline
of January 15th 2012.
Wikimedia Community Fellows are spearheading community projects,
undertaking research, and piloting new models for engagement to help scale
and increase sustainability of volunteer work in the Wikimedia movement.
The Foundation provides intensive, time-limited financial and logistical
support for fellows to focus on projects of strategic importance.
Submissions for Spring 2012 are encouraged to focus on the theme of
improving editor retention and increasing participation in Wikimedia
If you'd like to work with WMF on projects to boost participation and
retention, or know someone who should be recommended for a fellowship, or
if you've got ideas for a fellowship project WMF could support, we'd like
to hear from you! Please visit
for more information.
