Frequently asked questions

Are Talent Grants Still Available?

Applications to receive a talent grant is now closed. Upwork has awarded 40 organizations with a total value of $1M in talent grants to counter the impact of COVID-19.

What is a Work Together Talent Grant?

It’s essentially an Upwork credit that never needed to get paid back. If a project was selected to receive a Work Together Talent Grant, our team matched that organization directly with remote professional(s) who had the specialized skills needed, and the grant funds paid for some or all of their time to help propel the effort.

How much grant money was a business eligible to receive?

Work Together Talent Grants came in various amounts up to $25,000. The amount of each grant was determined based on each project’s scope.

What types of projects were eligible for Work Together Talent Grants?

We were looking to assist projects whose mission was tied directly to mitigating COVID-19’s devastating impact on individuals, communities, and economies everywhere. There were so many ways to help and no project was too big or too small to have a meaningful impact.

Were Work Together Talent Grants available to for-profit organizations?

Yes. Our goal was to provide the in-demand talent needed to help all types of businesses as they work to counter the impacts of COVID-19.
