Hey all,

I wanted to draw your attention to a new grants program we launched today
at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, aiming to fund *open source scientific
software* with significant adoption within the life sciences and biomedical
research communities.

We'd love to see applications from developers and maintainers in the R
community. More details on the motivation and scope of the grant can be
found in this Medium post
and applications
can be submitted by one of three upcoming deadlines (the first round of
applications closes on *August 1, 2019*).

Should you have questions on whether your package/project is in scope / or
you're eligible for funding, or anything else about the program in general,
you can write to: sciencegrants using chanzuckerberg.com

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications for software projects
that are essential to biomedical research, have demonstrated impact, and
can show potential for continued improvement. Applicants can request
funding between $50k and $250k for a one-year period, with the ability to
apply for renewal. Full details here.

We aim to support open source projects and the communities behind
them—whether it’s hiring an additional developer, improving documentation,
addressing usability, improving compatibility, onboarding contributors, or
convening a community, we hope to help make the computational foundations
of biological research more usable and robust. Read our Medium post
and visit our website
to learn more.
