Dear QGIS Community,
We are very pleased to announce that this year’s round of grants is now available. The call is open to anybody who wants to make a funded contribution to QGIS, subject to the call conditions outlined in the application form.
The deadline for this round is in four weeks, on 13th February 2022.
As of 2022, we are changing the procedure in the following ways:
- The project budgets should account for PR reviewing expenses to ensure timely handling of the project-related PRs and avoid delays caused by relying on reviewer volunteer time.
- In the week after the QEP discussion period, the proposal authors are expected to write a short summary of the discussion that is suitable for use as a basis on which voting members make their decisions.
Also, note the following guidelines established in previous years:
- The proposal must be submitted as a ‘QEP’ (QGIS Enhancement Proposal) issue in the repo: https://github.com/qgis/QGIS-Enhancement-Proposals (tagged as Grant-YEAR). Following this approach will allow people to ask questions and provide public feedback on individual proposals.
- Proposals must clearly define the expected final result, so that we can properly assess if the goal of the proposal has been reached.
For more details, please read the introduction provided in the application form.
We look forward to seeing all your great ideas for improving QGIS!
