I had a conversation with Vitor Mazuco about this email and agreed with his point of
Analyzing the list of users from Brazil that received schollarships from WMF during the
last years, I noted that WMF/Scholarship Committees are always supporting the same group
of people not generating opportunities for new people(and very important contributors) to
join and enjoy Wikimania.
Including, some of the users that received support to go to Wikimania never provided any
feedback to our community regarding Wikimania experience, learnings, knowledge acquired or
any kind of reports.
I think the scholarship committee should take in consideration those who have been to the
event several times, so that we can also include more people, increasing the
Wikimania's diversity in all possible ways, avoid so many repetitions engaging more
people into this international movement.
I'm not saying that the users that received support in recent years do not deserve
this support, my point is that we have more people who also deserve to go to Wikimania and
never get this opportunity, sometimes it disengage our volunteers.
