Thanks a lot Steven,

OSGeo Oceania will almost definitely be interested in running a TGP for
FOSS4G SotM Oceania this year (planned for Fiji in November). We grew our
program substantially this year (from 7 grantees in 2018 to 13 in 2019),
and I suspect we'll want to expand the reach again this year, particularly
given we're running it in the Pacific Islands. OSGeo support has been key
to accessing additional sources of funding so we'll most likely be asking
again this year.

OSGeo granted us USD $2500 in 2019. The cost of travel in the Pacific is
high, so if there is the potential to increase this for 2020, we'd be keen
to discuss.
