Subject: [Wikimania-l] Wikimania 2013 call for scholarship review committee
Cc: "Wikimania 2013 Hong Kong team" <wikimania(a)wikimedia.hk>, "Deryck Chan"
We are now calling for a scholarship review committee.
The scholarship review committee is an important and diverse group of
volunteers who help to run the scholarship program.
The main duties of the committee members prior to Wikimania 2013 are:
* Assistance in determination of scholarship applicant requirements.
* Assurance of due consideration and speedy response time to Wikimania
* Work with the local team.
We are looking for Wikimedians from all over the world, who are:
* Fluent in written English.
* Good communication skills.
* Discretion and ability to handle confidential applicant information,
and objectively assess candidates.
* Willing to review scholarship applicants in early 2013.
** Prior attendance at Wikimania.
** Strong knowledge of cross-project Wikimedia community.
You will be working remotely. While we hope that scholarship review
committee members will enjoy Wikimania 2013 by giving significant
input to it, the local team cannot guarantee financial support for the
committee members' travel expenses.
If you're interested to serve on the scholarship reviewing committee,
please send us an email at wikimania(a)wikimedia.hk . If you have any
queries, please don't hesitate to ask us.
Deadline to apply is Tuesday, December 11, 2012.
The local team will contact all candidates between November and
January; the list of scholarship committee members will be announced
