I am attempting to do outreach to all the Wikimeida chapters to assess which ones might
be offering scholarships to Wikimania 2015 being held in July in Mexico City. The WMF
Scholarship program's call for applications has been recently posted and the deadline
for receiving applications is February 16. The Scholarship Committee will be doing its
review and making its recommendations to WMF from mid-February through mid-March.
If a chapter would like to be sent applications from those submitted to the WMF
Scholarships Program, please get in touch with me prior to February 16. It would also
be helpful for planning purposes for me to know if a chapter will be offering scholarships
directly (not making use of the applications to the WMF program).
For more infomation about the WMF program see:
I look forward to hearing from chapter contacts in the next 3 weeks.
