Q2 2020 Survey Results

By Daniel Compton

Thanks so much for your support and feedback in the latest survey.

Our call for proposals for new projects will close on Thursday, April 9th, 2020 at 11:59pm PST.

This time around, we’re adding two new questions to our application to help us pick projects:

Note that if you haven’t been impacted by either of these, you are still eligible to receive Clojurists Together funding.

We’ll be funding four projects $9,000 each over three months ($3,000/mo). This is ideally May-July, but we’re able to be a little bit flexible on the start timing.
