Wikimedia UK is offering a small number of scholarships to support our
community members to attend and contribute to Wikimania 2016 in Esino
There are three scholarships of €500. A scholarship covers the €350
registration option (which includes accommodation for four days and travel
to the conference from the airport in Italy), and travel to the conference
from the UK for up to €150. We hope that this will enable the scholarship
recipients to participate in the heart of the conference.
Volunteer activity within the UK Wikimedia movement is the main criteria of
eligibility. Volunteers who applied for the WMF scholarship but were
unsuccessful can also apply. We will prioritise applicants who would not be
able to fund their attendance themselves.
The deadline for applying is 8th April and we aim to let you know by 15th
April (Wikimania registration runs until 15th May).
Please fill the form below to be considered for the scholarship.
All the best,
