As a member of the scholarship committee, please think carefully about
how you sell yourself.
Every year there are many more qualified applications than we have
scholarships to give, so it's crucial that you put yourself in the
mind of someone who has no idea who you are when you explain what you
have done for the movement, and how you intend to use Wikimania to
help strengthen your local free knowledge community.
Best of luck!

This is just to let everyone on this mailing list know that scholarships to
attend Wikimania 2017 in Canada are now open. Wikimania is an annual
Wikimedia/Wikipedia conference organised by both the Wikimedia Foundation
and local Wikipedia editors. This year's event will take place in
Montréal, Quebec, Canada from Aug 9-13, 2017.
Everyone on this mailing list is invited to apply. We typically do not get
enough scholarship applicants from Southern African countries so if you are
interested in attending then please do apply.
It is a great event that I always try to make a point of attending and
always enjoy meeting new people at. Especially folks from southern Africa.
You can apply at the link here: https://scholarships.wikimedia.org/apply
The deadline to apply is the 20th February 2017.
