Q: What Wikimedia project usernames should applicants list on their application form?
A: All usernames that have been used by the applicant for contributing to Wikimedia projects. If a username is shared with someone else, this should be noted on the application. Unused accounts need not be listed. In any case, there is no obligation for applicants to list all accounts they own or use for editing.
Q: Can applicants provide links to pages on other websites as evidence in their answers?
A: Yes, this is encouraged, especially for answering the enrichment related questions. However, links to on-wiki or off-wiki sites should be associated with clear descriptions of the applicant's involvement and contribution. Reviewers will consider all relevant information available to them when reviewing applications.
Q: How much are applicants expected to write when answering the questions?
A: Enough to give reviewers a clear picture of the applicant – guidance on what to write is provided with the Phase 2 selection criteria. The appropriate length for an answer varies from applicant-to-applicant depending on what they have to show. For most applicants, between three and five normal sized paragraphs per question answer will be sufficient. Reviewers do not expect to receive a dissertation, but overly short answers will usually fail to support the application clearly enough. Former scholarship recipients published their applications on metawiki, they can give you an impression on how your text should like.
Q: Can well known/established users skip the questions asking about their participation in Wikimedia projects?
A: No. Having more contributions should normally mean providing longer answers, not shorter answers or no answers at all. On grounds of fairness, all applicants are expected to make a reasonable effort to answer the questions as per the Phase 1 selection criteria.
Q: Can applicants edit their application after submission?
A: Unfortunately not. It is recommended that applicants draft their application carefully and ensure they say everything they need to say before submission. However, additional information can be submitted by applicants to where a member of the Scholarship Committee or Wikimedia Foundation staff will note the new information on the user's application. Please do not submit an application twice; this creates a lot of additional work for reviewers.
Q: Is there anyone who helps me writing my application?
A: Unfortunately, the Scholarship Committee and the organizers cannot respond to all questions regarding individual applications. For general questions to the process however, you can reach out to the latter on . Beyond that, applicants from Africa can reach out to African Scholarship Committee members and supporters Slashme (Afrikaans), Jamie Tubers, Wikicology (Yoruba), Papischou (French) for getting direct feedback.
Scholarship value and reimbursement process
Q: What does a Wikimedia Foundation scholarship pay for?
A: A Wikimedia Foundation full scholarship will cover the cost of an individual's round-trip travel as arranged by the Wikimedia Foundation travel agency, shared accommodation for up to 6 nights as arranged by the Wikimedia Foundation, and the conference registration fee. Note that some meals during the conference are covered by the conference registration fee, such as lunches and receptions. A Wikimedia Foundation partial scholarship will only cover shared accommodation and the conference registration fee.
Q: What expenses are not covered by a Wikimedia Foundation scholarship?
A: Expenses that are not covered include any incidental costs (new passport, travel guides, plug adapters, clothes, etc.), local transportation during the conference (except airport transfers), costs related to being accompanied by families and friends, and all expenses associated with any vacation taken outside of the conference dates. Please note that during the conference, some meals are provided. The Wikimedia Foundation will not normally cover the cost of obtaining a visa (see Travel) or reimburse the cost of meals outside of the conference venue – exceptions may be made upon request.
Q: How will the Wikimedia Foundation pay for the expenses of scholarship recipients? Send them the money? Reimburse them?
A: The Wikimedia Foundation will pay directly for conference registration fees, travel, and shared accommodation. For the booking of transport, applicants are required to use a travel booking service contracted by the Wikimedia Foundation. For transportation to and from the airport (in both their home country and conference venue), WMF will reimburse scholarship recipients if requested.
Q: Can Wikimedia Foundation scholarship recipients book their own travel arrangements and ask for reimbursement?
A: No, as a condition of submitting an application, all applicants must agree to use the travel booking service provided by the Wikimedia Foundation.
A: People who receive a scholarship will be provided a special code to register for the conference. All final decisions for the Wikimedia Foundation scholarships should be announced by May (see Important dates; the page will be updated in the event of a delay). It is not recommended that applicants register until they have received a final decision on their application.
Q: Will the Wikimedia Foundation provide visa assistance?
A: An invitation letter for all scholarship recipients requiring a visa to attend the conference will be provided (see Travel). We expect each recipient to contact their consulate or embassy on their own or through a visa service and pay any fees. If paying the visa fee is a hardship, the Foundation will cover this expense.
Wikimedia organization scholarships
Q: What other Wikimedia organizations are providing scholarships for attending Wikimania 2018?
A: This list of organizations offering scholarships is an ongoing process. See Wikimedia organizations scholarships for the full list.
Q: Do applicants interested in both a Wikimedia Foundation scholarship and another Wikimedia organization scholarship need to apply twice?
A: It varies. Some Wikimedia organizations will be using the applications for Wikimedia Foundation scholarships to select their recipients; in these cases, additional applications directly to the Wikimedia organization will not be necessary. However, other Wikimedia organizations require separate applications. See Scholarships#Wikimedia organizations scholarships for more information.
Q: If a Wikimedia organization requires separate applications, when is the deadline to apply?
A: That depends on the Wikimedia organization in question – see Scholarships Wikimedia organizations scholarships.
Q: Who is eligible for a Wikimedia organization scholarship?
A: Most Wikimedia organizations will only provide scholarships to individuals who are relevant to them, such as those who have contributed to Wikimedia projects in languages of interest to that organization, or who live in the country where the organization is based. See Scholarships Wikimedia organizations scholarships for more detail.
Q: How do Wikimedia organizations decide who receives their scholarships?
A: Final decisions on successful applications are usually made by the organization themselves. If an organization is using applications for Wikimedia Foundation scholarships (see above), they may take the reviews completed by WMF staff and the Scholarship Committee as a starting point. The organizations which do not use these applications will carry out their own review and selection process independently of both the Scholarship Committee and the Wikimedia Foundation.
Q: How do these other Wikimedia organization scholarships differ from Wikimedia Foundation scholarships?
A: They usually cover the same or similar expenses, but it varies by organization – see Scholarships Wikimedia organizations scholarships
