Proposed Application FormEdit

This is the application for sponsorship to attend Wikimania 2014, the annual international conference centered on Wikimedia projects. Awardees will receive a scholarship which will cover conference registration fees, hotel, and roundtrip travel to Wikimania in London, 5-10 August 2014.

This is not a scholarship for university study. Applications not obviously related to the conference will be discarded.

Please carefully consider your financial needs before applying for a scholarship to attend Wikimania. There are limited funds available and many applicants do not have the financial means to attend Wikimania without this opportunity. Thank you.

The deadline to apply is February 17, 2014, 23:59 UTC.
