Programma borse di partecipazione per Wikimania 2011

Wikimania 2011, settima edizione del raduno internazionale, si terrà ad Haifa, in Israele, dal 4 al 7 agosto di quest'anno. Wikimedia Italia mette a disposizione 10 "borse di partecipazione" per ammortizzare i costi di partecipazione all'evento.


Obiettivi del progetto

  • Incoraggiare la partecipazione all'evento di wikipediani e wikimediani italiani, che nelle ultime edizioni è stata numericamente piuttosto modesta.
  • Arricchire il raduno grazie alla partecipazione di gruppi di partecipanti diversi all'interno del movimento

Scholarship Selection

Process

The Scholarships Review Committee rates scholarships applicants based on a standardized set of criteria. The anticipated timeline for the scholarship program is as follows:

  • January 1-31, 2011 – Scholarship application open
  • January-March 2011 – Scholarship committee reviews applications and rates based on selection criteria and special considerations
  • End-March-Early April 2011 – Applicants are notified about final decisions

A note about Special Consideration: Following the committee rating process, special consideration will be factored in for 1) applicants from the Global South, according to the Movement Priorities as outlined by the Strategic Plan, with a particular focus on target areas India, Brazil, and Middle East/North Africa; and 2) female applicants (an under-represented editing demographic).

Selection Criteria 2011

Applicants will be rated on the three dimensions:
A) Current/historic level of participation in Wikimedia (50% of total score),
B) Current/historic level of participation in other free knowledge, free software, collaborative and/or educational initiatives (15% of total score), and
C) Future goals for participating in the Wikimedia movement (35% of total score)
