The Perl Foundation is looking at giving some grants ranging from $500 to $3000 in November 2008.
In the past, we've supported Adam Kennedy's PPI and Strawberry Perl, Nicholas Clark's work on Perl internals, Jouke Visser's pVoice, Chris Dolan on Perl::Critic and many others (just check http://www.perlfoundation.org/grants for more references).
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 by October 31.
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.
