Hi Sergio,

Thank you for this excellent initiative. GeoForAll will be supporting four student awards prizes  and we are keen to ensure it is distributed in different regions, so your initiative for having student awards at the  Free and Open Source Geographic Information Technologies and Open Data Conference in South America is very good idea. I will forward your mail to the GeoForAll AB and if there are no objections/updates recieved in two weeks time, then please go-ahead and announce the student awards (total 500 USD) and start making arrangements for the competitions.

You can then contact directly  the OSGeo treasurer  to have the award amount  transferred. Thanks for your initiative.

Best wishes,


From: Discuss <discuss-bounces at lists.osgeo.org> on behalf of SERGIO ACOSTAYLARA <sergio.acostaylara at mtop.gub.uy>

Comunidad gvSIG Uruguay will be organizing a Free and Open Source Geographic Information Technologies and Open Data Conference in Montevideo (our fifth) and we would like to have GeoForAll deeply involved in its organization. We would like to organize the student's prize as it was already proposed. Estimated dates are October 11th and 12th 2018. Please let us know if you need any more information and how to proceed for budget issues.

Thank you,

Thanks to everyone who provided estimates for the 2018 budget<https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Budget_2018>, the vast majority of requests were met - but there is still some work to do for planning 2018!


The above page is a draft, based on what I could quickly find. Please help identify sponsorship opportunities for 2018 for:

* committee initiatives - such as the conference committee travel grant program, or the UN committee capacity building exercises
* events including code sprints and foss4g events
* local chapters
* osgeo projects and community projects

To be listed please update that wiki page with a link to the sponsorship page of the respective initiative, event, local chapter or osgeo project.
