Thank you to all those who have submitted a proposal for Rising Voices’ microgrant funding for citizen media outreach projects. Applications are now closed. The deadline was 23:59 GMT on February 4th, 2011. Unfortunately, we cannot extend any deadlines or accept any additional applications.
We received a record number of applications from more than 80 countries around the world. And now, the selection committee will proceed with the challenging task of reviewing many quality proposals for final selection for the next group of grantees. Originally we hoped to announce the winners by February 28th, but due to the high volume of quality applications, we think it is important to push that date back to mid-March to give our committee ample time to thoroughly review the proposals.
Thanks again for all your interest in these microgrants to teach others how to use citizen media in underrepresented communities around world.
