The Perl Foundation is looking at giving some grants ranging from $500 to *$2000* in November 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 October. You would like to have the money, you have the knowledge, but do not know what do propose? Ask around and you will probably get some ideas.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Your submission should be properly formatted accordingly with our POD template.
Proposals will be made available publicly (on this blog) for public discussion, as was done in the previous rounds. If your proposal should not be made public,
please make this clear in your proposal and provide a reason.
