Dear Community Members,
We are pleased to inform you that the first round of scholarships to
facilitate attendance for this year's virtual Wikimania has been accepted
and the funds are being distributed.
As previously announced, the scholarships for the 2021 Wikimania are only
being channeled through affiliates. This was a complex decision and
something that we will build on for next year. Individuals who are not in a
community with an affiliate but would wish to receive support like data,
mobile top-off, and childcare can request a nearby affiliate for support.
We have so far received 22 Scholarship applications.
We appeal to all affiliates to be supportive of nearby regional communities
that may need help and reach out to the COT should there be need for
further guidance. Scholarship applications close on 31 July 2021
We also invite you to work with this Wikimania’s digital assets, which
include high-resolution graphics and virtual backgrounds. Access the
digital assets HERE
