[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia & Education Greenhouse - applications still open until May 12!

2019-05-01 Thread Melissa Guadalupe Huertas
Hola everyone!

Sorry in advance for cross-posting. As many of you are aware, last April
5th the Education team at the Wikimedia Foundation announced the launch of
the Wikimedia & Education Greenhouse (w.wiki/385). The W Greenhouse is a
fully immersive co-learning experience that lasts 9 months and is designed
for emerging education leaders in our movement who believe in the value of
Wikimedia projects in education. It will equip participants with the
skills, knowledge, and support to bring their ideas to life and scale them
into high-impact education initiatives in their community.

The W Greenhouse has two modalities of participation: as a team (
w.wiki/3A$) and as an individual(w.wiki/3NY). Applying as a team means that
you present an idea for an education project you want to develop in your
local community. One team will be selected to receive seed funding for
their project, on-site mentoring from WMF staff, and access to a free
project management online course. Applying as an individual means
completing a short form expressing your interest and motivation, and this
will give you access to the free online course.

So far we have received 1 team application and over 60 individual
applications from all over the world. Additionally, we have a great team of
experienced Wikimedia education leaders collaborating in the development of
this initiative. There are still two weeks left to apply (deadline is May
12) and we are very excited to keep reading about the amazing education
projects you want to develop! We have prepared some additional resources to
support applications during these final weeks and we have compiled them
into this slideshow (w.wiki/3NZ), including a short video guide for team
applications.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Melissa
Guadalupe Huertas via email: mguadal...@wikimedia.org. We appreciate you
sharing this among your networks and we look forward to reading more
applications.

Cheers!
