Hello everyone!

We are in need of revamping the Wikimania Scholarships Process, and your
help is needed! Please participate in the discussion on meta[1]:

Every year, the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikimedia Chapters, and outside
organizations sponsor the attendance of individuals to the international
Wikimania conference. In 2012, over 150 scholarships were awarded to
recipients from over 60 countries. These scholarship recipients were chosen
from 1,113 applications. Each recipient was selected primarily on the basis
of his/her participation in the Wikimedia projects and his/her future goals
for participating in the Wikimedia movement. The scholarship recipients
were chosen through a confidential application and selection process run by
the Wikimania Scholarship Review Committee. The committee was composed by
Wikimedia volunteers and one Wikimedia Foundation staff.[2]
