Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

(1) Update link to FAQ to correct Wikimania 2016 page.

(2) Change introduction text to:

This is the application for sponsorship to attend Wikimania 2016, 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 Esino Lario (Italy), June 21–28, 2016.

'''Applications may be submitted in any language''', but every applicant must '''provide evidence of English language abilities''' that are at a level which would enable them to participate in Wikimania, a conference which is primarily conducted in English. Sufficient English abilities could be demonstrated in the application itself or elsewhere.

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 January 09, 2016, 23:59 UTC.
