If you are requesting more than 1000 USD to distribute to your community, please provide additional detail on how you will distribute these funds.
Please provide a summary explaining the following:

  • how you will invite community members to apply for funding,
  • the criteria you will use to determine eligibility, and
  • the processes or services you will use to distribute funds.

This description does not need to be comprehensive, but should generally explain the process for how community members will receive funds or support to participate in Wikimania. For support on eligibility criteria, feel free to review this reviewer's guide for previous Wikimania scholarship programs.
If you are not distributing funds to community members, please write N/A below.

  • Our community members would fill a form for all the activities they are signing for and sign the community consent form which shows the specific reason(s) for requesting the funds.
  • Since we will be organizing some sort of a physical conference, talks, workshops and editathons like at Wikimania will be organized and so community members have to meet the minimum requirements of someone attending any Wikimania conference in terms of participation.
