2016-03-22 Thread Richard Farmbrough
I believe that Wikimania scholarships are one of the best uses of WMF 
funds.  I would like to see more scholarships.  If funds are a problem, 
then by all means have more scholarships for relatively local people - 
but frankly I don't think funds _are_ a problem.

Analyzing the list of users from Brazil that received schollarships from WMF 
during the last years, I noted that WMF/Scholarship Committees are always 
supporting the same group of people not generating opportunities for new 
people(and very important contributors) to join and enjoy Wikimania.

Including, some of the users that received support to go to Wikimania never 
provided any feedback to our community regarding Wikimania experience, 
learnings, knowledge acquired or any kind of reports.

I think the scholarship committee should take in consideration those who have 
been to the event several times, so that we can also include more people, 
increasing the Wikimania's diversity in all possible ways, avoid so many 
repetitions engaging more people into this international movement.

I'm not saying that the users that received support in recent years do not 
deserve this support, my point is that we have more people who also deserve to 
go to Wikimania and never get this opportunity, sometimes it disengage our 
volunteers.

 Hi everybody!

 my apply was decline.

 This is my second time that is decline, and my friend of Brazil goes
 every year, same users in every year and I never.

 If do you compare my contribution as long with their, I have much more
 and my apply is every year decline by WMF.

 Please, who can help with this?

 Thanks in advanced,

I had a conversation with Vitor Mazuco about this email and agreed with his 
point of view.

Analyzing the list of users from Brazil that received schollarships from WMF 
during the last years, I noted that WMF/Scholarship Committees are always 
supporting the same group of people not generating opportunities for new 
people(and very important contributors) to join and enjoy Wikimania.

Including, some of the users that received support to go to Wikimania never 
provided any feedback to our community regarding Wikimania experience, 
learnings, knowledge acquired or any kind of reports.

I think the scholarship committee should take in consideration those who have 
been to the event several times, so that we can also include more people, 
increasing the Wikimania's diversity in all possible ways, avoid so many 
repetitions engaging more people into this international movement.

I'm not saying that the users that received support in recent years do not 
deserve this support, my point is that we have more people who also deserve to
