8 week live online Drupal course free for an innovative web project.
At New Media Solutions our specialty is working with social entrepreneurs and innovative nonprofits. We think Drupal is an amazing and powerful free tool for innovative projects that make the world a better place. We are offering these grants to encourage its use.
We are giving out two Grants worth $450 each to people who have an innovative idea for a website that will have a positive social impact. If you have such an idea you are eligible to apply. (Projects can be for-profit, nonprofit, sponsored by an organization or independent.)
Winning this grant entitles you to register for free in an 8 week course on building an interactive website with Drupal ($450 value).
No programming skills are required. You can build your own site over the length of the course.
Applications must be submitted by 11am EST on Thursday, April 28th. We will announce the winner on Friday, April 29th. The course begins on either May 3rd or 4th.
(If you already registered for this course or if you want to register to hold a spot -- space is limited to 22 people per course -- you can still apply. Winners will be chosen by an impartial panel who will not know whether you registered. If you win, you will receive a full refund for tuition.)
