Wikimania 2024 Scholarships

All applicants have been notified about the outcome of their submission. Please check your e-mail and Spam folder. You can see the scholarship outcomes on a designated page.

انواع بورسیه

A scholarship is a grant given to an individual to enable them to attend Wikimania 2024 in person. This is achieved through the Wikimedia Foundation providing funds.

  • Full scholarships will provide flights, transport, accommodation, limited medical insurance, food, and registration fees.
  • Partial scholarships will provide accommodation, food, and registration fees.

All scholars will be provided meals in the time of lunch and dinner during pre-conference, conference days, and closing party at the venue. Meanwhile breakfast will be covered by the hotel.

No online scholarships will be offered to online participants. No dedicated Wikimania scholarships will be offered to affiliates wishing to organize Wikimania-related events around the world either. (Deferred to the General Support Grant. See also Related affiliate events funding section.)

Who can apply

چه کسی می‌تواند درخواست دهد؟

مانند گذشته، هر کسی که بتواند مشارکت یا فعالیت ها در ویکی‌مدیا را اثبات کند، می‌تواند ثبت نام کند. مثال هایی از این موارد عبارتند از:

  • مشارکت فعال (به جز عضویت و انجام وظایف عضو) در برخی از اشکال گروه و یا سازمان ویکی‌مدیا (کمیته، مرکز، فصل، سازمان موضوعی یا گروه کاربر)
  • مشارکت در رویدادهای سازمان یافته ویکی‌مدیا (به عنوان مثال عکاسان مشارکت‌کننده در «ویکی دوستدار یادمان‌ها»، شرکت کنندگان در کارگاه)
  • مشارکت در یک برنامه ویکی‌مدیا (به عنوان مثال مشارکت GLAM یا برنامه آموزشی)
  • سازماندهی رویدادها و یا مسابقات ویکی‌مدیا (به عنوان مثال WLM، «ادیت‌اتان»)
  • مدیر بودن، CheckUser، عضو VRT، مدیر رابط کاربری، مدیر یا سایر دسترسی‌های پیشرفته (در حال حاضر یا سابق)
  • دریافت کننده کمک هزینه بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا بودن
  • مشارکت‌کننده کد، ابزار یا دیگر ابزار ساخت برای پروژه های مدیاویکی

These are just examples, though. Go to the section Detailed advice, read recommendations in the table, and think how you would answer the questions your way.

  • Affiliate staff and contractors: There will be a separate pool of scholarships available to the paid staff of Wikimedia movement affiliates. Their applications will be graded separately and those applications will only compete with each other, while volunteer applications only compete with other volunteer applications.
  • In addition to the general pool of scholarships, each currently organized Wikimedia hub and/or regional conference team (where a hub is not present) will get 1–3 spots for their representation at Wikimania. Given hubs' natural understanding of their communities, this can be used to increase diversity in participants by inviting a volunteer from a non-represented community, to invite paid staff, an expert, or a member of a steering committee. Hubs and regional event teams will be contacted about this after the scholarship decisions are published.

If you have questions, go the section "Who can apply" in the FAQ. If you have further questions, go to Contact / Help / I have questions not answered on this page.

The Core Organizing Team will be hosting open calls for everyone interested in Wikimania. The meetings will take place at different times of the day to accommodate different time zones:

We will share general updates about Wikimania 2024, help with scholarships, and answer other questions. Come in and ask us about programming, scholarships, logistics, or how to get involved with Wikimania.

مشاوره دقیق

  • Filling out the application form will take approximately 45–60 minutes. You can not edit the application after submission. You can only edit it before submission if you don't clear your cookies. Draft carefully and ensure that you write everything you need to write. Please do not submit an application twice.
  • You may submit your application in language other than English. If possible, do consider English, though. This is the only language spoken by all Scholarship working group members. Also consider that you will need a working level of English for travel and volunteering at the event anyway.
  • We kindly request an honest delineation of individual contributions in group efforts. We do not accept accomplishments that cannot be proven or are untruthfully claimed as solely individual if in fact these were group efforts. Add a link to Diff, a wiki page or even a social media post that will allow us to check if you did what you claim as yours.

چه کسی می‌تواند درخواست دهد؟

Are the scholarships only for first time Wikimania participants?

We will be prioritizing applications from those who best fulfill the criteria of contributing to the Wikimania experience. We will take into account how the scholarship would enhance the applicants' contributions to the mission after the event.

من بخشی از یک پروژه/سازمان وابسته نیستم. چگونه برای دریافت بودجه اقدام کنم؟

Individuals are able to apply regardless of their affiliate membership status.

من یکی از کارکنان بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا هستم. آیا می‌توانم درخواست بدهم؟

  • Not as staff. The Core Organizing Team does not provide scholarships to Wikimedia Foundation staff. Attendance of Wikimedia Foundation staff, Wikimedia movement Committees and Wikimedia Foundation Trustees is covered by the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • If a paid staff member decides to apply for a scholarship, we expect that they clearly mark which of their accomplishments were coordinated as a staff member, and which were done on volunteer time. Please offer an explanation where required.

من یکی از اعضای کارگروه بورسیه تحصیلی هستم. آیا می‌توانم درخواست بدهم؟

Yes. Volunteer scholarship reviewers will be eligible for a scholarship. To avoid conflict of interest, their applications will be reviewed by a team made of Core Organizing Team members and past Wikimania scholarship reviewers.

اگر نتوانم شخصاً در ویکی‌مانیا شرکت کنم، چگونه می‌توانم شرکت کنم؟

There will be an option to join virtually as it will have elements of being a hybrid event.

You may choose to organize a watch party, a local event with activities, or build your event around participation in Wikimania’s programme. This year though we will not be funding Wikimania-related events organized by affiliates from the Wikimania grants fund, funding for the meetup can be requested via the regular grant process.

محدودیت بودجه چقدر است؟

هیچ مبلغ یا ارزش دلاری وجود ندارد. یک فرآیند انتخاب متوازن در همه مناطق وجود خواهد داشت.

When will the submissions be reviewed?

Submissions will be reviewed by the Scholarships working group on an ongoing basis.

How will scholarships be reviewed and awarded?

We will encourage you to provide the suitable answer and link accordingly on LimeSurvey. Once all surveys have successfully been completed and therefore all of the data has been collected, the Scholarship working group will jointly determine which people will become scholars.

When will I receive feedback around my scholarship application?

Offers will start going out during the second half of February. All applicants will be notified of their outcome as quickly as possible. This may take a couple of weeks as some people's circumstances may prevent them from accepting. Other applicants will be referred to their affiliates if you choose that option.

چگونه متقاضیان بورسیه از نتایج مطلع می‌شوند؟

We will use the e-mail address provided on the application to notify applicants. All applicants will be contacted at some point, regardless of the result. We encourage you to use your active email address or provide your active username account in the application form.

بورسیه دریافت کرده ام/نکرده‌ام و...

شرایط گزارش‌دهی چیست؟

Instead of reporting, we are asking scholars to support by volunteering at the event. We will work with you on finding a role that suits your needs, skills and experience. You may write a report, though!

آیا می‌توانم بورس تحصیلی خود را به شخص دیگری منتقل کنم؟

No. To provide equality, the scholarship was reviewed to a certain order of merits. If a recipient will confirm to decline it, we will pass it to the next person in the order of the review.

اگر بورسیه امسال را رد کنم، آیا می‌توانم آن را به ویکی‌مانیا سال آینده منتقل کنم؟

No. Each year Wikimania was set under different themes under the consideration of each COT in certain regions. We will encourage you to apply again for the following year, but we will ensure to consider your continuous valuable contribution in our review process.

اگر بورسیه تحصیلی دریافت نکردم، آیا می توانم از گروه بورسیه درخواست کنم تا درخواست من را دوباره بررسی کنند؟

No. Our review process involves several meticulous steps, and regrettably, it can only be completed once.

من برای بورسیه اقدام کردم اما نگرفتم. من الان چکار کنم؟

Getting a scholarship is not necessary for attending Wikimania; you can also register to attend as long as you can cover your own costs.

If you can't cover your own costs, we strongly encourage you to get in touch with an affiliate in your region. They might be running their own scholarship program or hosting a local event!

(Last year, this was called Satellite events)

Wikimedia affiliates may use funds already obtained through the Wikimedia Foundation General Support Fund (GSF) to run a Wikimania-related event locally, even if such an event was not initially included in their GSF proposal. The GSF grantees have the ability to move funds around their budget as needed, and, per the General Support Fund agreement, the Foundation only requests that Program Officers be informed if that variance is more than 20% from the original proposal.

We encourage all affiliates interested in hosting a Wikimania-related event to list their event details on the Related affiliate events subpage, so that affiliates may coordinate between themselves, encouraging collaboration and connection amongst Wikimedians and to better promote their events.

  • Affiliates wanting to live stream into Wikimania should get in touch with the programme working group at wikimania(_AT_)wikimedia.org as soon as they have the details of their event.
  • The Core Organizing Team will provide technical support for groups wanting to livestream into Wikimania.
