If you're an organizer of an R-focused meetup group, or are planning a community-led R conference, the 2018 R Consortium R User Group Support Program is now accepting applications for sponsorship. The 2017 program funded 76 user groups and 3 small conferences, and the program is expanding further in 2018. User groups now also receive a complimentary Pro account, and the grant levels for small conferences have increased. 

This is a fantastic program to support the R community, and supports the R Consortium's mission to foster the continued growth of R community and the data science ecosystem. Funding for these programs comes from R Consortium members, so if you'd like to see more such programs consider asking your employer to join.
