Hello, today I and Martin have polished the scholarship vision/program for our Wikimania 2015 bid: <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Esino_Lario/Scholarships>.
Considering a background and aiming for a long-term impact on the Wikimedia mission, we propose the following principles: Transparency; Accountability and self-reflection; Grassroot; Efficiency and fairness; Innovation. From those we identify 4 external needs and 8 goals.
Please read the proposal and edit boldly or comment on talk page or wherever. Keep in mind it's still a draft, not the official WMIT proposal yet. While the bids warm up and the Wikimania discussion is still quiet, we think it's useful for everyone to focus the discussion on some specific areas in advance. (And if all bids adopt our idea of scholarships, all the better!)
