You raise a valid concern that the COT has tried to mull over and the
current proposal at hand is to have the affiliates extend support to any
individuals or groups beyond their envelope.

I would like a clarification
Given that this year, scholarships are only open to Affiliates, and given
that only 12 Affiliates actually submitted requests, where can the actual
individuals that will participate to Wikimania ask for support ?
I do understand the point of tasking the affiliates to deal with
scholarship requests rather than having to deal with them at the Wikimedia
But in the end... 12 Affiliates will possibly cover the needs of their own
What about the several hundreds of participants that are not members of
one of those 12 affiliates ? And who have no choice to turn to ?
Did I miss something entirely ?
