Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Here's a new Drupal site in education that just went officially live yesterday after a few months of work: The Council of Writing Program Administrators. The site is based on Drupal 4.5. The theme is a modification on one of negen's great designs (thanks!). And special thanks to mathias for his work on the ecommerce module which allows us to provide membership subscriptions! When coupled with the taxonomy_access module, the ecommerce subscriptions feature really expands Drupal's capabilities for due-paying membership organizations.
