Call For Grant Proposals (July 2015 Round)


The previous round got no proposals and we seriously need one. It doesn't have to be a huge Perl project. Do you have anything in mind you want to spend a few weekends to work to help the Perl community?

The Grants Committee is accepting grant proposals all the time. We evaluate them every two months and another evaluation period has come.

If you have an idea for doing some Perl work that will benefit the Perl community, consider sending a grant application. The application deadline for this round is 23:59 July 17th UTC. We will publish the received applications, get community feedback and conclude acceptance by July 31st.

The format will be the same as the previous rounds in 2014-2015.

To apply, please read How to Write a Proposal. Rules of Operation will also help you understand how the grant process works.

We will confirm the receipt of application within 24 hours.

If you have further questions, please comment here or contact me at tpf-grants-secretary at


Sorry, obvious question but... how does the stack of things-that-the-perl-community-would-benefit-from look like?

A list of desirable/helpful tasks seems an obvious thing to publish along with a call for grant proposals, isn't it?

Gratipay might be a good alternative to traditional grants.
