Hi Roman,

I’ve begun a job now and been pondering giving money specifically for supporting scholarships to Wikimania. Is that an option? I’d like to help support for example increasing people coming from Myanmar abc other under represented language regions.

Warm regards

Hi Naureen

I'm the scholarship co-chair, what you are offering is a wonderful opportunity thank you.  

Please contact Roman and me directly to discuss how we can make this a reality , my initial thought is that WMF process would run it normal course, while that is happening we can identify people from places like Myanmar who rated highly but werent offered a place and dont have an affiliate scholarship pathway to pursue.  

There are some mechanics we'll need to put in place and there will also be some privacy issues to consider, before it goes ahead.

Thank you again for such a wonderful offer

Regards
Gnangarra
