Oggetto: [Wikimania-l] Invitation to Wikimania 2016 Scholarship Committee
Data: Sun, 1 Nov 2015 21:11:05 +0000 (UTC)

Dear Wikimaniacs,
we are now calling for a scholarship review committee.
This year, we additionally want a scholarship ambassador for each major
geography or language, including a representative from each entity which
pays for additional scholarships; the ambassadors will be committee
The scholarship review committee is an important and diverse group of
volunteers who help to run the scholarship program in accordance with
the pillars
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2016_bids/Esino_Lario/Pillars> of

this Wikimania. We encourage people from all Wikimedia wikis to apply
for this position so that the committee can handle applications in many
different languages.
The main duties of the committee members prior to Wikimania 2016 are:

    * Participation in periodic online meetings with scholarships program
      manager and other committee members.
    * Review and edit communications material (e.g. Scholarship wiki,
      application questions).
    * Assistance in determination of scholarship applicant requirements.
    * Assurance of due consideration and speedy response time to Wikimania
      scholarship applications in multiple languages.
    * Work with the local team.

For further information please visit m:Wikimania/Scholarships/Tasks
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania/Scholarships/Tasks> (the
committee will also be polishing this page).
We are looking for Wikimedians from all over the world, who are:

    * fluent in written English and have good communication skills, or can
      name local community member(s)/ambassadors who help them with
      English translations.
    * discreet and able to handle confidential applicant information, and
      objectively assess candidates.
    * willing to review scholarship applications in late 2015/early 2016.
    * having either or both:
        o previously attended Wikimania.
        o strong knowledge of the cross-project Wikimedia community.

You will be working remotely. While we hope that scholarship review
committee members will enjoy Wikimania 2016 by giving significant input
to it, the local team cannot guarantee financial support for the
committee members' travel expenses since scholarship review committee
members may not apply for a scholarship themselves.
If you're interested in serving on the scholarship reviewing committee
and/or as scholarship ambassador, *please send us an email at
[hidden email]*. If you have any questions, please don't
hesitate to contact us.
Deadline to apply is *Sunday, November 15, 2015*. The local team will
contact all candidates and publish the list of scholarship committee
members right afterwards. Please help with translations on
wm2016:Scholarship committee
Proposed timeline

    * Nov 1–Nov 15: Call for Scholarship Committee
    * Nov 16–Dec 6: Preparations of the Scholarship Committee
    * Dec 6–Jan 9: Submission time
