Former invitation

Dear Wikimaniacs,

we are now calling for a scholarship review committee.

This year, we additionally want a scholarship ambassador for each major geography or language, including a representative from each entity which pays for additional scholarships; the ambassadors will be committee observers.

The scholarship review committee is an important and diverse group of volunteers who help to run the scholarship program in accordance with the pillars of this Wikimania. We encourage people from all Wikimedia wikis to apply for this position so that the committee can handle applications in many different languages.

The main duties of the committee members prior to Wikimania 2016 are:

  • Participation in periodic online meetings with scholarships program manager and other committee members.
  • Review and edit communications material (e.g. Scholarship wiki, application questions).
  • Assistance in determination of scholarship applicant requirements.
  • Assurance of due consideration and speedy response time to Wikimania scholarship applications in multiple languages.
  • Work with the local team.

For further information please visit m:Wikimania/Scholarships/Tasks (the committee will also be polishing this page).

We are looking for Wikimedians from all over the world, who are:

  • fluent in written English and have good communication skills, or can name local community member(s)/ambassadors who help them with English translations.
  • discreet and able to handle confidential applicant information, and objectively assess candidates.
  • willing to review scholarship applications in late 2015/early 2016, estimated time is 30 hours.
  • having either or both:
    • previously attended Wikimania.
    • strong knowledge of the cross-project Wikimedia community.

You will be working remotely. While we hope that scholarship review committee members will enjoy Wikimania 2016 by giving significant input to it, the local team cannot guarantee financial support for the committee members' travel expenses since scholarship review committee members may not apply for a scholarship themselves.

If you're interested in serving on the scholarship reviewing committee and/or as scholarship ambassador, please send us an email at domande.wikimania@wikimedia.it. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Deadline to apply is Sunday, November 15, 2015. The local team will contact all candidates and publish the list of scholarship committee members right afterwards. Please help with translations on this page.
