Its that time of the year, again. The Perl Foundation is looking at giving some grants ranging from $500 to *$2000* in February 2012.
You don't have to have a large, complex, or lengthy project. You don't even have to be a Perl master or guru. If you have a good idea and the means and ability to accomplish it, we want to hear from you!
Do you have something that could benefit the Perl community but just need that little extra help? Submit a grant proposal until the end of January.
As a general rule, a properly formatted grant proposal is more likely to be approved if it meets the following criteria
* It has widespread benefit to the Perl community or a large segment of it.
* We have reasons to believe that you can accomplish your goals.
* We can afford it (please, respect the limits or your proposal should be rejected immediately).
To submit a proposal see the guidelines at "http://www.perlfoundation.org/how_to_write_a_proposal":http://www.perlfoundation.org/how_to_write_a_proposal and TPF GC current rules of operation at "http://www.perlfoundation.org/rules_of_operation":http://www.perlfoundation.org/rules_of_operation. Then send your proposal to email@example.com. Note that should be properly formatted accordingly with our POD template.
Proposals will be made available publicly (on this blog) for public discussion, as it happened in the previous rounds. So, please make it clear in your proposal if it should not be public, and why.
