Hi Dr Pavanaja,

Back in April you asked for a list of scholarship applicants and people 
explained why we only publicise the list of people who are awarded a grant, not 
the people whose applications are declined. The list of people awarded a grant 
has been published, your request for a list of applicants has not and hopefully 
won't ever be published. Nothing has changed. If people apply for a scholarship 
and are declined that remains a private matter between the applicant and the 
scholarship committee, unless of course the applicant chooses to say that they 
applied and didn't get a scholarship.



This was your email in April.

>>> I would like WMF to make the list of applicants, their contributions, the 
>>> weightage used for each kind of contribution and the final list of 
>>> scholarship awardees in a table form. Since WMF is run by the contributions 
>>> of the volunteers, such a transparency is definitely needed from WMF. I 
>>> hope WMF will oblige.
>>> Regards,
>>> Pavanaja
