Hello Projects!

NumFOCUS is pleased to invite proposals for our 2nd round of Small Development Grants for 2020! We have moved up the timeline so that projects can get some additional support from us during these unusual times.

Apply Here: https://numfocus.typeform.com/to/mbtH7w


  • Deadline for Proposal Submission: April 30, 2020

  • Projects will be Notified: May 25, 2020 (or sooner)

Available Funding:

  • Up to $5,000 per proposal


  • Any NumFOCUS Fiscally Sponsored or Affiliated project may submit one proposal on behalf of the project per grant cycle.

    • If you wish to solicit proposal ideas from your project community, the project leaders must organize their own review process to select the proposal that the leadership will put forward to NumFOCUS.

  • Funding can be used for: code development; documentation work; website updates; workshops and sprints; educational, sustainability, and diversity initiatives; or other types of projects.

  • Proposed work must be achievable within calendar year 2020.

  • The call is open to applicants from any nationality and can be performed at any university, institute or business worldwide (US export laws permitting).

Funding Distribution:

  • For fiscally sponsored projects only, NumFOCUS can deposit the grant funding directly into the project’s account. The project would then submit invoices through the normal channels (i.e. Rocket) to pay the grant expenses.
  • NumFOCUS can set up an independent contractor agreement with an individual or company.
  • NumFOCUS can award the money as a grant or subcontract to a student or postdoc at a university (depending on the rules of the university).
  • NumFOCUS can directly pay for expenses associated with the grant (e.g. booking flights on behalf of project leaders to attend a workshop, per diems for travel days
