Hi to all,
without being too original here, and following praveenp comments - would
be good to encourage recipients of WMF scholarship to organize some type
of Wikimania follow-up activities back in their groups or chapters.
I do believe that most of them are doing it anyway without any
requirements from WMF, but if majority would do it - we could have
something as a ”permanent Wikimania” unfolding globally for a couple of
months after the official Wikimania.
