Thanks very much for the update - look forward to receiving the
applications. You could also consider applying for one grant for all the
YouthMappers Bangladesh communities, but nominating one university to
receive the funds and distribute amongst the groups. Let me know if you
want to discuss that further.

>> Hi All,
>> We're excited to launch the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Microgrants
>> 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
>> 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.
