Thank you Rebecca. Since we the Bangladesh OSM community doesn't have any
formal registration, we are suggesting the University chapters to apply for
the micro grants since each chapters have a structured committee with
adviser from the institution. I can say that HOT gonna get 3/4 micro-grant
application from OSMBD community.

We hope and believe that few awardees of this program will be from

> Hi All,
> We're excited to launch the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Microgrants
> programme
> <https://hotosm.org/updates/2016-12-06_funds_for_community_led_projects_the_2017_hot_microgrants_program>
> !
> Many OSM communities around the world are achieving amazing results on
> zero or near-zero budgets. HOT wants to support the development of these
> communities, through providing funding for basics. For example, GPS
> devices, internet access, and training costs. We're looking to provide up
> to ten Microgrants between $2,000 - $5,000 USD. Our goal is to enable the
> development of local OSM communities, to increase skills, capacity and
> experience. We will award grants to projects which broadly contribute to
> HOT's mission.
> More details on the programme and the application form can be found here
> <https://docs.google.com/document/d/1s9ltOxx_0jkJdQW1uqv9oXoF8cV9ryK8TH87Vv4de4M/edit>.
> HOT support will be provided before, during and after the grants period.
> Applications must be received by *12th March 2017*.
> Please share this to individuals or organisations who might be interested
> to apply. We are looking to support communities in Southeast Asia, South
> Asia, Latin America/Caribbean and Africa, but will consider other locations.
> Get in touch with any questions, or email microgrants at hotosm.org.
> Thanks,
> Rebecca
