Hi Linux Australia,
This is a grant request per http://www.linux.org.au/projects/grants
I would like to apply for a Linux Australia grant on behalf of the Ada
Initiative in order to partially cover costs for our event AdaCamp,
planned for January 14 in Melbourne just before LCA. I request a grant
to support AdaCamp at either the $500 or $1000 level as outlined in
the attached sponsorship prospectus.
AdaCamp is a one-day summit/unconference about increasing women’s
participation in open technology and culture with a regional focus on
Australia. AdaCamp will bring women together
to build community, discuss issues women have in common across open
technology and culture fields, and find ways to address them. In
particular, we hope to find out what common
responses and resources are needed and how the Ada Initiative can
contribute to them.
(If any women reading are interested in *attending* AdaCamp, please
In terms of grant conditions:
Be for the good of a project that relates to Linux or Open Source:
this project is intended to build community among and resources for
women in open technology and culture, which benefits Open Source and
