How will you measure and evaluate your project’s impact - on your main participants? Other contributors? On the larger community?

How many participants do you expect to be involved in your project? How will you seek and sustain their involvement?

Describe how your project will benefit Creative Commons' mission to increase the amount of creativity (cultural, educational, and scientific content) in "the commons".

Describe what technologies and tools your project will use. What kinds of technical skills and expertise do you bring to the project? What are your technical needs?

Provide a detailed budget for your project. Please submit your figures in US Dollars.

Grants will be awarded in amounts between US $1,000 up to a maximum of US $10,000. Applicants are encouraged to submit budgets for less than the maximum whenever possible, as smaller grants allow us to fund more projects. Internet hosting fees can be provided by Creative Commons and therefore need not be included as budget expenses. Potential costs to include in your budget might include hardware, internet access, translation, travel, workshop, and coordinator expenses.
