Chi tiết tài trợ tham dự

This year, the WMF will be offering two types of Scholarships to attend Wikimania:

  • Full Scholarships, which will cover the following expenses:
    • Di chuyển khứ hồi
    • Chỗ trọ chung
    • Lệ phí đăng ký tham dự hội nghị
  • Partial scholarships, which will only cover:
    • Shared accommodation
    • Conference registration fee

For scholarships offered by the Wikimedia Foundation (in conjunction with some chapters), the total number of scholarships awarded is dependent on the total budget available for scholarships in 2016. However, an estimated 90% of the final budget will be awarded to full scholarships, and an estimated 10% will be awarded to partial scholarships. The final number of scholarships will be determined in Phase 3 when final scholars are be selected. From previous years, this is estimated to be between 70–90 full scholarships and 70–80 partial scholarships, depending on final costs.

Full scholarships are subject to quotas, while there is usually no geographical or linguistic limit to partial scholarships; see below for details and the table of confirmed amounts for more information of the estimated number of scholarships offered by both the WMF and Wikimedia organizations.

In the scholarship application, each applicant must indicate which type of scholarship they are applying for. However, an applicant may choose the option "I am applying for a full scholarship, but would be able to attend if awarded a partial scholarship". For applicants who choose "I am applying for a full scholarship, but would be able to attend if awarded a partial scholarship", they will be considered for a full scholarship first, and then a partial scholarship if full scholarships have all been awarded.

Please see the FAQ for more information on what expenses are covered by scholarships, and which expenses recipients are expected to cover at their own expense.

 Suất tài trợ tham dự của các tổ chức Wikimedia

The WMF is not the only organization offering scholarships for Wikimania 2016; other Wikimedia organizations such as chapters and thematic organizations may also be offering their own scholarships. We will list them below as we get confirmation about their program, so check back here in early 2016.

The following Wikimedia organizations will collect scholarship applications from those submitted to the Wikimedia Foundation Scholarships Program – there will be no need for applicants to submit a separate application to the Wikimedia organization listed below.

The following Wikimedia organizations will offer scholarships, but will not make use of applications to the Wikimedia Foundation Scholarships Program. Wikimedians who are interested in receiving a scholarship from them, are invited to apply to the Wikimedia organization directly.

Điều kiện nhận tài trợ

Any active contributor to a Wikimedia project, or Wikimedia volunteer in any other capacity, from anywhere in the world, is considered eligible for a scholarship. As the program supports volunteer participation, individuals whose participation is tied to paid work are not eligible for a scholarship.

Unlike in previous years, activity within the Wikimedia movement will be the main criteria for evaluation. Participation in non-Wikimedia free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives is a plus but is no longer a requirement; individuals who solely contribute to such areas are no longer encouraged to apply. Please see the FAQ for more information on eligibility.

Quy trình xét duyệt

The selection process for the 2016 Wikimania Scholarship Program has been updated after collecting, discussing, and integrating feedback from scholarship applicants, recipients, Wikimania organizers, the Scholarship Committee and WMF staff. As such, the 2016 selection process will follow three phases of assessment and evaluation, to determine the final recipients, as follows:

  1. Giai đoạn 1 – Đánh giá điều kiện
    • All applications will be reviewed by a staff member of the WMF, with a score of zero (fail) or one (pass) awarded on an application-by-application basis using the Phase 1 selection criteria. All applicants will be notified by e-mail on whether their application has passed or failed once this phase of review is completed.
  2. Giai đoạn 2 – Xét duyệt chọn lọc
    • All applications that pass Phase 1 will be reviewed in more detail by the Scholarship Committee, with a minimum of two reviewers per application. Each reviewer will independently review and score each application against the Phase 2 selection criteria, in order to reach a final score for each application.
  3. Phase 3 – Final approval for Full Scholarships
    • Based on the applicant's home country, each applicant will be categorized as either a Global North or Global South applicant, with the total number of scholarships distributed between the Global North and Global South being set at 25% and 75% respectively.
    • For both Global North and Global South groups, based on the applicant's "primary language community on wiki" (self-reported in the application), applicants will be separated by the size of the active editor community on their most active Wikimedia project, as determined by the average number of active Wikimedians per month (over the time period September 2014 to September 2015). Scholarships will be allocated equally across these sub-groups, defined as follows:
      • Large language community – Average number of active Wikimedians per month is above 1000
      • Medium language community – Average number of active Wikimedians per month is below 1000 but above 100
      • Small language community – Average number of active Wikimedians per month is below 100
      • Multilingual community – Applicants whose most active Wikimedia project is Commons, Species, Data, Incubator, MediaWiki or Tool Labs (where "most active project" is self-reported on the application) will be placed into this category, as language communities aren't as relevant.
    • The WMF will determine the total budget available and make estimations on per-applicant costs (for example, someone attending Wikimania 2016 from South Africa will require different levels of financial assistance than someone attending from Panama). Top scoring Phase 2 applicants in each sub-group will be awarded a scholarship.
      • For applicants within 10% of the "cutoff", preference will be first given to the non-male applicants.
        • The "cutoff" will be the score associated with the last scholarship awarded in each sub-group
      • Unused scholarships being reallocated through the following process:
        • A minimum score will be determined for each sub-group (different for each sub-group), below which applicants will not be considered for final selection. In the event of insufficient applicants with a high-enough score in a particular sub-group, unused scholarships will be equally reallocated to the other sub-groups.
        • In the event where there are insufficient applicants with a high-enough score across all sub-groups, unused scholarships will be reallocated to other group (and distributed equally among sub-groups).
  1. Phase 3 – Final approval for Partial Scholarships
    • All applicants for partial scholarships will be ranked by their score, with top scoring applicants awarded a partial scholarship.

Following the completion of Phase 3, a decision will be issued by e-mail to all remaining applicants as to whether their application has been successful or unsuccessful. Those with a successful application will be given the opportunity to confirm their attendance at Wikimania 2016 and their acceptance of the awarded scholarship. A few applicants will be placed on a waiting list; these applications may be awarded a scholarship at a later date depending on the acceptance rate of successful applicants and whether resource use by scholarship recipients is as estimated.

Giai đoạn 1

Applications will fail Phase 1 if any of the following failing criteria apply:

  1. The applicant is a 2015 or 2014 scholarship recipient who did not complete their post-conference report(s).
  2. The application entirely or primarily consists of content which is off-topic or abusive.
  3. The applicant has failed to make a reasonable effort to answer the questions on the application form.
  4. The applicant has failed to provide evidence of English language abilities that are at a level which would enable them to participate in Wikimania, a conference which is primarily conducted in English. Sufficient English abilities could be demonstrated in the application itself or elsewhere.
  5. The applicant has failed to demonstrate any significant Wikimedia contributions or activities which may merit the awarding of a scholarship.
    • Examples of "significant Wikimedia contribution or activities" are as follows:
      • Active contributor to a Wikimedia project (e.g. Wikipedia, Commons or Wikisource), with at least 50 contributions (edits)
      • Mediawiki code contributor, gadget or other tool-builder for Wikimedia projects
      • Involvement in some form of Wikimedia organization (chapter, thematic organization or user group)
      • Wikimedia CheckUser, Admin, Bureaucrat, Steward or OTRS volunteer (current or former)
      • Wikimedia Foundation Grantee
      • Wikimedia Researcher

      • Participant in Wikimedia organized events (e.g. photographer contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM), workshop attendee)
      • Organizer of Wikimedia events (e.g. WLM, edit-a-thons)

Applications for which no failing criteria apply will pass into Phase 2 for further evaluation.

Giai đoạn 2

During phase two, applicants will be assessed on two main dimensions – relevant experience and enrichment – with each applicant being awarded a score on a scale of zero to ten for each criterion. These scores are then averaged to give an applicant's final Phase 2 score. These criteria have been selected with the objective of highlighting applicants who have compelling Wikimedia-related experiences and demonstrate a particular ability to use their experience/learning to enrich their home community.

Kinh nghiệm cần thiết

Activity within Wikimedia projects or organizations (chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups) indicates that an applicant will add value to Wikimania through the experiences and knowledge they have gained from contributing.
