It is now possible to send the application for scholarship for Wikimania.
It would be great if lots of Wikisourcerors were there, as Wikimania is an
extremely productive and exciting time
to work on projects, get ideas and have meetings.
I really encorage all of you in think about it and try to participate:
Wikimedia Foundation is giving scholarships, but also does some chapters.
So, think about it.
Moreover, as a Wikisource user group we could advocate to give users of
Wikisource a sort of priority
in the scholarship selections... (I simple mean to write them and note that
Wikisource is in amazing shape and this is the time to boost things :-)
