Amplify Madison Call for Applications remains Open with new considerations due to Covid-19
MADISON, Wisconsin – YWCA Madison is accepting applications for Cohort 3 of Amplify Madison. Amplify Madison funds collaborative professional development projects to build skill, voice, and visibility for all people that identify as women, including trans women and in particular women of color working in the Madison region’s thriving local community organizations.
This year Amplify Madison will continue to fund opportunities for teams of women to participate in professional development opportunities of their choice, to then integrate their learning and wisdom from highly diverse frameworks and contexts to their work and the broader Madison community.
All people that identify as women, including trans women and in particular women of color interested in applying are welcome to apply by gathering themselves in teams of three people to collaborate on putting together an application for a total of up to $7500 to fund both, a professional development opportunity in which they would otherwise be unable to participate as well as community engagement activities.
This year, due to the pandemia health crisis and the major shifts experienced in our families, organizations and relations as human beings and with nature, Amplify Madison has adapted to allow teams to respond to the new dynamics regarding social distancing and traveling. Due to the ever increasing availability of virtual self directed and virtual live professional development opportunities, Amplify Madison grants will now cover these types of offerings. We have also extended the application window to August 31st., as well as the use of funds to one year between May 2020 and May 2021. That means teams have greater flexibility in planning community engagement activities to share their learning, experiences, and new wisdom to contribute to the transformation of our Madison community.
We have updated our application and posted responses to questions that can guide interested teams in preparing for the professional development experiences within the current context of coronavirus.
Amplify Madison Call for Applications is Open through August 31st, 2020. Application process this year will be carried out on a rolling basis, however, early submission is highly recommended as funds may be exhausted before August 2020. For more information visit: http://ywcamadison.org/
