On behalf of the Scholarship Committeee and WMF, congratulations to the 104 
people who were awarded
a scholarship to attend this year's Wikimania being held in  Mexico City July 
15-19, 2015.     WMDE is sponsoring 13
of these.  Other chapters are providing additional scholarships as well, and 
will announce later on.


The 2015 program involved a major re-design of the application and selection 
process. Preliminary outcomes have already been aggregated, including a 
preliminary list of topics for investigation next year.   Highlights include:

        • ~28% identified as Female
        • ~73% indicated they were from the Global South
        • ~26% received a scholarship to attend Wikimania 2014
        • Of these repeat applicants, most submitted good/great 2014 
post-conference reports
        • The average Phase 2 score for recipients was 8.9, with 70% of 
recipients scoring a 9 or above



Updated information about registration, accommodations, and the program for 
Wikimania '15 will be available on or before
May 1, 2015. 

Ellie Young
WMF Conference Coordinator
