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.

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 See: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:TPS/Wikimania_scholars/2015_Outcomes Updated information about registration, accommodations, and the program for Wikimania '15 will be available on or before May 1, 2015.
