Submitting for payment

The R Consortium provides financial support to a broad range of initiatives, in support of the global R development and user community. When organizations become members of the R Consortium, their membership dues help provide this funding, and help ensure the overall health of the ecosystem.

The R Consortium provides funding through a structured process. The primary funding categories are:

  • ISC Grants, which are allocated by the Infrastructure Steering Committee through an application process, and support code and community development efforts.
  • RUGs Grants, which support local R User Groups.
  • R-Ladies Grants, which support local R-Ladies chapters.
  • RCDI Grants, which support the R Community Diversity Initiative.
  • R-Hub Grants, which support the goals of the R-Hub initiative.

All grant payments must be pre-approved. Please follow the formal process established by each working group to apply for funding.

Invoicing for your grant

Starting in October 2020, each grant recipient will receive a control number. Please ensure that you include this in all requests for payment. If you are unsure of your control number, please contact operations@r-consortium.org.

When you are ready to submit for payment, please complete the payment request form. You will be asked to provide the following, so please have it ready:

  • The control number for your grant.
  • A W9 form (if you are in the US and have a SSN/EIN) or an international wire form.
  • The signed contract or a PDF of the email approving your grant.
  • A brief description of how the funding was used (e.g., project milestone, RUGs or R-Ladies meetup, etc).
