Budget breakdownEdit

  • 2-4 scholarships for wikipedians-in-residence 20000 DKK ~ 4000 USD

Sum 4000 USD

Project scopeEdit

Two GLAM institutions in Denmark plan to have wikipedians-in-residence in 2011/2012, but such positions are not salaried, so many capable potential candidates will not apply.

We would like to have a broader set of potential residents. A scholarship could open the positions to people in ordinary jobs.

Project goalEdit

The goal of this project is to enable a wider recruitment.

Non-financial requirementsEdit

There are no significant non-financial requirements, but we are in a process of learning and sharing our experiences.

Fit to strategyEdit

The project will help develop the cooperation with the GLAM sector, and allow us to expand this cooperation in the future.

Other benefitsEdit

This project allows us to take advantage of some timely opportunities for cooperation with the GLAM sector.

Measures of successEdit

We will consider this project a success if we attract at least one applicant for a wikipedian-in-residence position, who is not a student and does not have alternate funding.
