http://rising.globalvoicesonline.org/blog/2008/12/23/rising-voices-seeks-micro-grant-proposals-for-citizen-media-outreach

Application Deadline: January 18, 2009

Rising Voices (http://rising.globalvoicesonline.org), the outreach arm of Global Voices (http://globalvoicesonline.org), is now accepting project proposals for microgrant funding of up to $5,000 for new media outreach projects. Ideal applicants will present innovative and detailed proposals to teach citizen media techniques to communities that are poorly positioned to discover and take advantage of tools like blogging, video-blogging, and podcasting on their own.


As the internet becomes more accessible to more people, including mobile phone users, the so-called digital divide seems to be narrowing. In its place, however, we see a participation gap in which the vast majority of blogs, podcasts, and online video are being produced in middle-class neighborhoods in major cities around the world.


Rising Voices aims to help bring new voices from new communities and
speaking new languages to the conversational web, by providing resources and funding to local groups reaching out to underrepresented communities in the developing world.

Please visit our current list of grantees for project examples:
http://rising.globalvoicesonline.org/projects.


The sky is the limit, but unfortunately funding is not. Rising Voices
outreach grants will range from $2,000 to $5,000. Please be as thoughtful, specific, and realistic as possible when drafting your budgets.


Successful projects will be prominently featured on Global Voices. Grantees are expected to host regular workshops to train participants how to start and maintain a weblog, upload and share digital photographs, and produce basic videos. Grantees are also required to post regular project evaluations and updates to the Rising Voices website.


Completed applications will be accepted no later than Sunday, January 18. Please submit your completed application on the Rising Voices apply page:
http://rising.globalvoicesonline.org/apply/

Feel free to ask questions in the comments section below or by sending an email to outreach@globalvoicesonline.org.


All the best,
David Sasaki
Rising Voices
